Lake Track


The Lake Track is 93km long and starts in Whakaipo Bay and passes through Kinloch before reaching the Waihaha River and State Highway 32.

The trail will follow the edge of Lake Taupo on an all weather track taking you through native forest. You will be treated to stunning views across Lake Taupo and to Tongariro National Park.

The trail offers a multi-stage riding experience with shorter stages more suitable for beginners, and others for intermediate cyclists.

The Lack Track can be ridden in all seasons. The track’s pumice soil surface means that even in wet weather there is normally little or no mud on the trail.

Access to the trail will be by road and/or water taxi. It is proposed that there will be five places on the lake where cyclists can be dropped off or picked up by boat.

You can ride the full trail over 2-3 days or make use of a water taxi for a range of shorter options.

The first part of the Lake Track (33km) has already been constructed by Bike Taupo and includes the popular W2K Track.

The funding from Nga Haerenga, The New Zealand Cycle Trail project will be used to construct the remaining 60 kilometres of the track through to the Waihaha Road Bridge on State Highway 32.
