Mountain Biking In Rotorua

Pohutu Lodge Motel is one of the closest of any to Redwoods Whakarewarewa Forest, which features the famous ‘Redwoods’ and its awe-inspiring 100 plus kilometres of world class mountain biking trails. The Redwoods are considered the jewel in the crown of Rotorua and has earned the bragging rights as New Zealand's top mountain biking destination and one that is up there with any other international mountain biking destination.

The Redwoods caters to all levels of mountain biking and offers trails for those wanting to ride for 2 hours, half or full day or go on multiple day adventures. Mountain bike enthusiasts are seriously spoilt for choice in this paradise of trails. If you have a kids bike seat you can also consider taking your child along for the ride as there are plenty of easy trails which kids will love.

The quality of the Redwoods trails stems from the hard work of some of the world’s top trail designers and hundreds of local volunteers. It is one of the oldest mountain bike networks in New Zealand and features excellent draining volcanic soils, varying topography and stunning scenery.
