About the Pureora Forest Park
The Timber Trail goes through the Pureora Forest Park (78,000 ha) which straddles the Hauhungaroa and Rangitoto Ranges. It is a hidden wonderland of tall trees, clear rivers and rare wildlife. A place of beauty indeed and a great place to enjoy cycling. Pureora was once a thriving timber village. Today the forest has the largest tracts of native broadleaf podocarp forest in the North Island, and its towering trees and luxurious undergrowth are truly awe-inspiring. For more information on Pureara Forest see the following – but don’t forget to come back to us:
To get there go via State Highway 4 via Ongarue and Waimiha on the southwestern side to arrive at the start right by Flashpackers, The Hub of the Timber Trail, 6 Ongarue Road, Ongarue.
