Experience the best part of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail from Opua to
Kawakawa! A scenic and family friendly adventure. Depart from Paihia in our
purpose built mountain bike trailer and vans, and get dropped in the nearby
Port town of Opua. Start following the old railway tracks, a flat and very
scenic trail from Opua to Kawakawa, taking in the train tunnel, rail
bridges and historic towns. Make sure you have your camera ready! 

Spend some
time for lunch or a snack in historic Kawakawa, checking out the famous Huntertwasser
Toilets, Vintage Railway and Steamtrain running right through the main street
in town. This train operates in the weekdays and some holidays, so may be
possible to add to your trip. Afterwards, retrace your tracks and follow
the meandering Kawakawa River through to the seaside Opua. Time for
another coffee or bite to eat before your shuttle takes you back to your
accommodation or Paihia Mountain Bikes HQ in Paihia for a well deserved rest.
This trail is 11km in each direction (22km return). It is is all off the main
road, a very easy gradient and achievable by all levels of fitness so great for
