What the Rotorua Trails Trust is about:
The aim of the Rotorua Trails Trust is to develop a network of great multi-user trails across the splendid Rotorua district.
We want trails to provide thrills, recreation, exercise, scenic views; or just an interlude of tranquillity with nature.
BACKGROUND: The work of the Trust continues the achievements of the Rotorua Mountain Bike Club. The Club has already developed such a superb range and quality of trails in the Whakarewarewa forest as to make Rotorua the world’s best all-year-round mountain biking centre. The Trust has accepted the challenge of extending these trails and improving the network.
USER GROUPS: As well as extending trails in the Rotorua District for mountain biking, the Trust will develop trails that are suitable for walkers, trampers, runners, cyclists, and horse riders. Some trails will be multipurpose; others primarily for one or other of these users.
- The Trust will work to enhance the value of existing trails by linking them together and improving them, for multi-use where possible.
- This includes better links with trails in the surrounding districts and with national networks. The Trust will work with iwi and other landowners, RLC, BOPRC, DOC and other government agencies, and recreational and environmental groups.
- The Trust will be an advocate for new and better trails and new uses of trails.
- The Trust will develop and manage trails. It will seek funding, sponsorships and contracts to do so. The Trust will not seek a marketing role itself but will cooperate and assist others in marketing.
