Waitangi Mountain Bike Park:
A professionally built, world class mountain bike park, with over 40km of singletrack trails to suit all abilities from Beginner (Grade 2) to Expert (Grade 5) and loads of trails in between. A good place to explore as an adventure with the family, as a group of mates or for the adrenalin junkies and mtb addicts who want to experience some of the best trails in New Zealand. A full-suspension bike is a must in this park, you might end up with a bit of a sore bum if you ride anything else! http://www.wmbp.nz/
Twin Coast Cycle Trail:
The Twin Coast Cycle Trail is one of New Zealand's Great Rides, and a perfect option for those new to biking, or wanting to see a few more sights, history and get a glimpse of New Zealand rural towns and backcountry. Our Cycle Trail extends from Opua (6km south of Paihia) to Horeke on the west coast to complete an 85km trail following the old railway corridors. The Trail is all about grade 2 level so is definitely rideable by beginner, family and older riders. Paihia MTB Rentals can arrange transport for you and your bike to the start and end of the trail too. Our high spec full-suspension bikes (and Gel Seats) are very welcome ride on the trail as the rear suspension soaks up every little bump and makes for a very relaxing and comfortable ride, you'll never want to go back to another bike again ;). A very scenic day (or 2 or 3) out on the trail, one of the Must Do's while in Northland. Our Cycle Trail options are below:
1: The Full Trail (One Day): Go like the clappers and knock off the full 85km from Horeke to Opua in one day (West to East). Riding in this direction allows for more downhill (and everyone likes that!). Ideal for those fit people out there. You know who you are! Trips depart Paihia daily
2: A Taste of the Trail (One Day): Explore one of the best parts of the Rail Trail from Opua to Kawakawa and return. A 20km return trip, this is a fantastic and easy family friendly option for all abilities for a half or full day excursion. Follow the old train line following the Kawakawa River crossing train tunnels, and historic stations and bridges. Enjoy a coffee, a bite to eat and see the famous toilets in Kawakawa before returning back to Opua for your shuttle. Trips Depart Paihia daily
3: The Full Trail (Two Day): One of our more popular options. Experience the full beauty of the Rail Trail over 2 days. Ride from Kaikohe to Opua (45km) on the first day, taking in the train tunnel, swing and rail bridges and historic towns. Depart again in Kaikohe for the second day, riding through 44kms of awesome scenery and backcountry to finish down in peaceful Horeke. Trips depart from Paihia with accommodation in Paihia available.
4. The Best Bits! (Two Day). If you are here for a good time, not a long time then this is the one for you! Check out the best sections of the Rail Trail over 2 days. Explore the stunning section from Opua to Kawakawa and return for a fun day's ride (20km), followed by the ever popular and recently opened section from Okaihau, to Horeke (30km). This last section heads down the valley through farmland and following rivers and incorporating a cool 3km boardwalk before reaching the historic town of Horeke and the mission station. Trips depart from Paihia with accommodation in Paihia available.
