Taranaki Trails

Best place in New Plymouth and Taranaki for a family cycle ride?

Posted on 6 December 2020

Taranaki has so much to offer for a great family cycle ride.

When it comes to good old-fashioned family fun, it’s hard to beat biking. As well as fresh air, exercise and exhilaration, it’s also a chance to learn about the world – animal, mineral, vegetable and much more besides.

The website www.taranakitrails.nz shows all the walkways and cycleways that may suit families.

Just go to the “Find my adventure” page, and you can filter the trails by type of activity (walking, cycling, mountain bike riding), grading (easy, medium, hard), distance and if it’s a loop.
