Discover the secrets and stories of a remarkable forest

deep in the heart of the North Island.

Cloud Forest Bikepacking


Winding between the tiny King Country settlements of Pureora and Ongarue, the 84km Timber Trail trail serves up a 1–2 day adventure in and around Pureora Forest Park – a mix of virgin, regenerating and exotic forest full of surprises such as ancient trees, delightful birdlife, and abandoned timber milling sites. Along the way, it reveals not only a landscape of awe-inspiring beauty and intrigue, but also stories of how this special place has changed through the ages.
