    Rangitaiki 40km from Taupo on the Napier Taupo Road has easy tracks on the flat & more challenging tracks on the surrounding hills. It's pumpice based so drains quickly but hill tracks can be scoured with deep ruts.
    The western end opposite the Rangitaiki Lodge is best for beginners. We used to stay in basic cabins at the Rangtaiki Tavern until they logged the hill behind the tavern 5 years ago. My friend's 2 teenage boys practised their skills here & the oldest is now a better rider than his father or me.
