This track has extraordinary and scenic beautiful link and offers expansive views over the Lake Taupo, view of Tongariro Crossing. You are riding through volcanic rock formations, on a mixture of pumice and natural dirt trails that descend into Kotukutuku Stream – via bridges and board walks to waterfall, then to lake edge.
