Whataupoko Park has numerous trails suitable for walking and mountain biking. It offers sweeping views of Poverty Bay from many sites on the reserve creating a scenic attraction.

At Millmore Forest you’ll find about 15km of trails and forestry road, created by Gisborne MTB Club on private forestry land. The terrain is rolling and you have the option of family friendly riding, such as ‘Easy Trail’ all the way up to challenging tracks like ‘Johnny B Goode’.
Because this is private land you must have a pass. Visit Bikeys to purchase your pass ($10 for 1 week, $25 for all-year) and get your map and Millmore Forest information.
