Twin Coast Trail "Taste of the Trail": Opua - Kawakawa

The Twin Coast cycling trail runs from coast to coast in the Northland region. Your freedom tour includes covering the sections Opua - Kawakawa - Opua (approx 11km in each direction/22km return). Paihia Mountain Bikes will take you from Paihia by courtesy van & drop you off at Opua and pick up from the same point later in the day.

The trail between Kawakawa and Opua follows the old rail line. The ride is flat, easy to pedal and perfect for all levels of fitness & younger family members too. It is located right beside the Opua Harbour and follows the Waikare estuary. It provides views of the estuary connecting to the Kawakawa River & runs through the train tunnel, rail bridges and historic towns. Make sure you have your camera ready! Spend some time for lunch or a snack in historic Kawakawa, checking out the famous Huntertwasser Toilets, Vintage Railway and Steamtrain running right through the main street in town. This train operates in the weekdays and some holidays, so may be possible to add to your trip. Afterwards, retrace your tracks and follow the meandering Kawakawa River through to the seaside Opua. The cycle into Opua has amazing views across the inner reaches of the Bay of Islands and the Local Marina. There is a cafe, toilets and car parking right where you start (or end) your ride. Be sure to stop and visit the 100 year old Opua General store perched out over the water on piles. Take a stroll out on the Opua Wharf & watch all the activities going on!

Waitangi Mountain Bike Park (Half Day Experience):

The Adventure Experience allows riders to enjoy the trails at the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park. The trail is only 3km away from the tourist hub of Paihia!

The recently-opened Waitangi Mountain Bike Park provides the perfect introduction to mountain biking with lots of easy, scenic trails that you can take at your own pace. It offers lots of trails of varying difficulty with great flow and features, from introductory downhill riding, jump trails, cross country and beginner trails. The trail network has grown rapidly and the trails cater to all levels of ability. There are plenty of fast, flowing berms, rollers and jumps. Grade 2 and 3 runs are so well-built, they’re still fun for more advanced riders.

Zone 3 with 13 new trails just opened April 2017! Zone 3 is a whole new level of awesome - providing multiple descents, including an impressive jump line with big table tops. Zone 3 features grades 2, 3 & 4 - there is something in here for everyone. The view from the Sky Summit is breathtaking and well worth the climb for this alone, but it also provides the access point for many spectacular downhill tracks. The tracks all lead down to Taro Rd, so it makes it easy to meet up with your mates at the bottom of the hill, if you all take different level descents.
