Description

The trail begins at the Taupo Boat Harbour, where Redoubt Street meets Ferry Rd (but there are plenty of parking options along the length of the ride, meaning you to start and finish at any point you choose).

From the Harbour it heads along the lakefront, along which you can see stunning views across the lake toward Mt Ruapehu, Mt Tongariro and Mt Ngauruhoe. The track passes a number of popular hotels and motels, as well as hot water beach where you can stop and dip your toes in the hot sand.

The paved walkway continues on past the Three Mile Bay boat ramp, taking in more
secluded bays with boats moored and some lovely holiday homes. There are a number of
picnic and rest areas on the lakefront where you can stop and take in the views or have a
swim.

Kowhai trees have been planted along the way to provide shelter for local wildlife. Ducks
and swans can usually be seen as you pass by. This beautiful, completely flat ride along the lakefront is restful and relaxing. With stunning scenery and lapping lake water on the pumice beaches, this is a therapeutic and healthy ride for any age group.
