Great Lake Trail
Kinloch is the heart of the Great Lake Trail conecting the W2K mountain bike track to the Kawakawa mountain bike track. You can also catch a boat with your mountain bike to Waihaha for some more epic mountain bike trails.
When planning your ride on three arms of the Great Lake Trail, part of Nga Haerenga – the NZ Cycle Trail, Kinloch is the perfect place to finish any trail stopping for ice creams coffee or an excellent meal. The trails diverge east and west and cyclists on the Waihaha trail are brought back to Kinloch by boat. By mountain bike or foot, the bush-clad trails gradually climb to cliffs above Kinloch where your efforts are rewarded with magnificent views right across Lake Taupō and Kawakawa Bay.
