    Pauatahanui and Paraparaumu. This vast back country area is managed
    for multiple purposes – timber production, maintenance of water quality,

    future water supply needs.

    There is an extensive network of tracks and old logging roads in the
    Akatarawa Forest used daily for forest management purposes. They also
    provide access for a range of recreation activities. Most of the tracks are
    suitable for mountain biking and offer an exciting array of terrain and

    This brochure outlines mountain biking tracks and how to get there.
