Rotorua Trails Trust



Rotorua is fortunate to have a wide range of superb trails. Walkers, runners and trampers can choose from a ten minute stroll through giant Redwoods, running the Tarawera 100km ultra marathon or tramping in some of New Zealand's best native podocarp forest in the Whirinaki Valley.


Rotorua Trails Trust is committed to further developing Rotorua's trail network, especially linking up some of the existing trails.


We value public input, so if you have any ideas about possible new trails or existing trails that could be improved please contact us.
