Day 1: Depart from Paihia in the morning, and get dropped at Kaikohe in our purpose built mountain bike trailer and shuttle van. Today, ride the trail all downhill from Kaikohe to Opua (45km) taking in th train tunnel, swing and rail bridges, traditional maori community buildings (marae’s) and historic towns. Spend some time for lunch in historic Kawakawa, checking out the famous Huntertwasser Toilets and Vintage Railway and Steamtrain running through the main street in town. This train operates in the weekdays and some holiday, so may be possible to add to your trip. After your break, follow the meandering Kawakawa River through one of the most scenic sections of the trail to the seaside town of Opua. Time for another coffee or bite to eat before your shuttle takes you back to your accommodation or PaIhiaMTB HQ in Paihia for a well deserved relax and dinner out in one of the many eateries in town. We often ride this part of the trail in this direction to allow for an easier downhill gradient, and the wind to be blowing behind you...it can be a bit of a tough ride in the opposite direction!
Day 2: Depart from Paihia in the morning again, heading for Kaikohe for the second day of 44km riding.. This time, you will be riding in the opposite direction (but still downhill!) all the way past picturesque Lake Omapere on the old Rail Corridor to Okaihau for a rest stop. Carry on riding down through the beautiful Utakura Vally, following bubbling streams through backcountry farmland and untouched rural New Zealand. Some of these sights are 'only in Northland' type views- spot the cows! Stop along the way for a break at the lilly-pond or at one of the many picnic tables or patches or grass dotted along the route.. Finish your ride on a 2km boardwalk over the mangroves before a cold drink or brew at the famous Horeke Tavern, right on the edge of the Hokianga Harbour. It is well worth to continue riding a further 3km to the Mangungu Mission Station at the end of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail. Your shuttle will take you back to Paihia from here at Horeke.
