GRADE: 3  LENGTH: 2.1km (including the exit via Turkish Delight trail)


BUILT: by Rotorua Mountain Bike Club, Casey King and Mark Upshall (Spadewerx) and volunteers - Sept/Oct 2012.


GETTING THERE: The most common route is to climb the steady gradient of Katore Road to the top. When the climb levels out at a junction, take the left turn and a short distance along a sign on the right marks the trail to the top of the hill and the Tokorangi entry, which is right next to the harder grade Corridor trail.. If entering the forest from the Long Mile Drive/Tarawera Road side take the As You Do Trail. This climbs steadily, crosses Tokorangi Pa Road and finishes on a link road. Go right here, down and up the road, then right at the next junction and shortly afterwards the trail entry is on the right. An alternative is to climb Tokorangi Pa Road from the bottom (there are a couple of testing steep pinches) and take the previously mentioned As You Do Trail where it crosses the road.


TRAIL DESCRIPTION:

Permission for this build was granted by the local Iwi, Ngati Whakaue who are in charge of the Tokorangi triangle of land on the ridge above the city. Toko means 'to prop up' while Rangi refers to the 'sky'. The position of this track on the high point of the ridge makes this name very appropriate. The trail meanders down the northern slope of the hill overlooking Rotorua City and Lake Rotorua. Fast and flowy, with berms but no real jumps to speak of, this is pump and roll territory. After the initial young pine plantation the trail drops into native bush and mature pine forest then links with Turkish Delight.

GETTING OUT: The trail joins Turkish Delight Trail for a swift run to Nursery/Katore/Radio Hut Roads intersection. Another option is to turn left onto Soakhole very shortly after joining Turkish Delight, and this will take you to Katore Rd opposite the start of Grinder Trail.

RIDERS COMMENTS:
This trail is o for awesome. Best to do the first part of Corridor then drop in to Tokorangi at the intersection where the sign is. Think of it like a steeper version of corners with a bit of split enz thrown in for good measure. Carry on to Turkish then exit trail back to the information centre and you will leave the trails with the biggest grin ever!
