A Fun and easy way to visit the stunning regions of the NZ North Island By Bike

Timber Trail Accommodation

The Timber Trail is located in the Pureora Forest, off state highway 30, between Mangakino and Te Kuiti (Waitomo Caves) Central North Island. The Timber Trail is an 85km ride, made up of two halves with the free camping area of Piropiro Flats being the midway point.

There are a number of great accommodation options available so you can enjoy your two day adventure on the Timber Trail. All accommodation is close to the start, finish or half way point, which makes it easy to get to at the end of the day. 

It is important to think about your Timber Trail accommodation options while planning your trip as the Timber Trail is not close to major centres so motels, restaurants and shops are not easy to come by. 

Timber Trail Accommodation we recommend includes:

  • Art Doc Gallery and Sleep-out
  • Benneydale Lodge
  • Lake Maraetai Lodge Mangakino
  • Pa Harakeke
  • That Dam Lodge Whakamaru
  • Waione River Homestead Waimiha
  • Waitomo Lodge Te Kuiti
  • Timber Trail Kohia - Former DOC Huts at Pureora

Each offers a unique experience and can be bundled into a Timber Trail Package Deal with accommodation, food and shuttle. 

Blue Tui can tailor your shuttle and accommodation to suit your stay.
