What are Grade 1 & 2 Trails?
Grade 1 Trails in the Whakarewarewa Forest are very easy, with no technically difficult sections, and are great for beginners.
Grade 2 Trails will have some steeper slopes, or longer climbs, but will still be safe for people getting used to riding their bikes off-road.
As well as all these easy trails below, the Forest Loop will give almost anybody and fantastic expedition to enjoy. It is a grand tour of the forest, with spectacular views over three lakes. There are places to stop and refuel en route, and many ways to modify the route when you are ready to do so.
