Twin Cycle Trail

The cycle trail stretches 87 km from Ōpua on the east coast, across the heartland to Horeke on the Hokianga Harbour on the west.The trail tells the story of an emerging nation, capturing the history and heritage of Māori and European activity and settlements. Enjoy a taste of Te Tai Tokerau Northland, its quaint towns, untouched rural landscapes, and picture-perfect coastlines.


The trail can be ridden from coast to coast in either direction between Ōpua in the Bay of Islands to Horeke in Hokianga. You can also start in the middle in Kaikohe and ride the trail on a downward slope toward each coast.


Allow plenty of time for stops, exploring and to read the storyboards along the way which bring life to the history and stories of local people. There are sheltered areas and seating, as well as bio-loos spotted along the trail to make your stops more comfortable.


Local operators also offer guided tours, with tailored itineraries including bike hire, guides, shuttle pick-ups, accommodation, and food. The trail is open year-round thanks to its compacted shale surface and is open during daylight hours only.
