Maraeroa Cycle Trail

Regional Ride

Waikato, North Island

April 20th saw the opening of the Maraeroa Cycle Trail, a joint initiative between iwi and DOC. A 23km loop, the cycle trail utilises the opening portion of the Nga Haerenga cycleway before turning onto private land and winding through a pine plantation on its way back to Pa Harakeke, an eco-tourism eco-culture centre located 1km from Pureora Village. Despite being partly private, the entire cycle trail will be free to ride.

The Maraeroa Cycleway is approximately 23kms long and will take an experienced rider about 2-3 hours to complete.
