Tongariro River Trail, Turangi

2020 dates will be announced in autumn

The Tongariro River Trail is an easy grade 2 mountain bike ride which winds its way along the banks of the beautiful Tongariro River, suitable for beginner riders and families. The trail includes two exciting swing bridges to cross and is surrounded by native bush and birdsong.

The Tongariro River is world renowned for its trout fishing and the river trail is a window to this world. You’ll pass fisherman wading in famous fishing pools with names like Major Jones and Duchess Pool, named after the Queen Mother who once fly-fished there, and the Tongariro National Trout Centre at the far end of the trial is a worthwhile stop off.
