Welcome to Pureora Forest Park – Our Special Place. Kia Ora Pureora!

Discover Pureora Forest by bike


We are blessed with one of the last remaining intact podocarp forests in the world, right here in Aotearoa, the Land of the Long White Cloud. We welcome you to come and share it with us, by bike or on foot, and hear its many stories from ancient times to the present. 

Thanks for visiting our website, created in co-operation between Ruapehu and Waitomo District Councils to help promote the Timber Trail and its growing and well-deserved reputation as one of New Zealand's greatest adventure rides.

We work closely with the many other key players that have helped our trail thrive, including the Department of Conservation, local iwi, the New Zealand Cycle Trail organisation, Visit Ruapehu and Hamilton Waikato Tourism, and all the fantastic operators that serve the trail and its visitors.

On behalf of us all, we hope you will find everything you need to know to enjoy a wonderful journey of discovery on the Timber Trail.

Thanks for your support, helping the Timber Trail go from good to great!
