BE SET FREE…
The Motu Trails offer it all. There’s awesome riding, along stunning beaches and through spectacular native forest. Plus, all the trails are open all year round.
You have three trails to choose from, with the option of combining them all. That means the Motu Trails has something for all ages, fitness levels and preferences.
The Dunes Trail offers family friendly riding for 11km along the Eastern Bay of Plenty coastline. This is ideal for all riders. Don’t rush — and stop at the Tirohanga Beach Motor Camp shop for a refreshing ice cream or drink!
The Motu Road Trail heads 67km from the end of the Dunes Trail to the settlement of Matawai. You ride a quiet unsealed road through scenic farmland and forested conservation reserves, with some hills for challenge and fun.
The Pakihi Track is the third trail in the Motu trilogy. This is a magic ride on a 100-year-old track that twists through remote forest. The Pakihi is rated grade 4 (Advanced) because in places, the trail is narrow with steep drop-offs to the side.
