Jonathan Kennett describes this section as “The best Grade 3 ride in New Zealand.” An extraordinary and scenically beautiful ride with expansive views of Lake Taupo and the majestic volcanoes of Tongariro National Park. Ride amongst vast stands of Kamahi, through volcanic rock formations, past the intriguing Echo rock and descend down to Waihora Bay. 30km Grade 3 ride. Mountain biking experience required.

Approximately 6.5 hours walking or 4.5 hours riding.
