  • In September 2012 the Department of Conservation and the Lake Okataina Scenic Reserves Board officially opened the Western Okataina Walkway to dual usage (Both walking and mountain biking).

    • The Western Okataina Walkway is an old forestry road that dates back to earlier last century when the area
    was logged for rimu, totara, rata & kahikatea. It is generally wide and well formed
    • Located just 15km from Rotorua (Millar Road entrance) with alternative entrances off Lake
    Okataina Road
    • Enjoy the trail as you flow through some stunning native bush
    • Catch your breath as you absorb the amazing views of Lakes Rotorua & Rotoiti from atop of the Whakapounakau Trig
    • Enjoy an exhilarating downhill all the way into the Outdoor Education Centre
    • Trail can be rode in both directions

    The Western Okataina Walkway is grade three backcountry riding (on a scale of 1-6) – Steep slopes and/or avoidable obstacles possibly on a narrow track and/or with poor traction. It is a challenging ride in mostly native forest.

    From Millar Road to the Outdoor Centre is 19km one way.
