Te Ahi Manawa Video trail guide – Grade 5 Rotorua Redwoods New Zealand

Te Ahi Manawa, “The Burning Heart”, is another favourite trail of mine although one I don’t ride enough. It takes a technical line through some beautiful forest on the South Eastern side of the trail and descends down to Lake Rotokakahi (Green Lake).

In this video it looks like I’m just pootling along, I’m certainly not pushing the envelope!! Its a narrow trail with lots of nadgery bits and trees to clack your bars on. When pushing hard it is a significant challenge.

The A line branch hop seen at 00:01:14 is actually easier than it looks but requires good commitment. I’ve ridden it before easily enough but forgot it was coming this time down and its definitely something to be ready for.

Billy-T and G-Rock Video trail guide – Grade 4 Rotorua Redwoods New Zealand

Billy T starts just up the hill from the drop off of the Hill Road shuttles and is, therefore, a popular well ridden grade 4 trail in the Redwoods. It starts through native bush before popping out into the post apocolyptic wasteland of recently harvested forest. G-Rock continues on through the nuclear winter-esque landscape via some big corners.

As a Grade 4 trail its fun technical and flowy then gets fast and loose as it breaks into the open. The big drop (seen in the video) has been replaced since filming with a big table top boosting into a super fast lander. I preferred the drop but the new feature is still fun.

K2 Video trail guide – Grade 5 Rotorua Redwoods New Zealand

K2 is a steep grade 5 on the open side of the hill with fun, technical riding but lots to catch you out, it’s a good challenge.

In the video you’ll see the awkward, steep, tight corners and big off camber roots that make this a challenging track. When thinking about the days route its a very useful link from the Katore Road area over to the Hot X Buns and Hill Road Shuttle areas.

Box of Birds Video trail guide – Grade 3 Rotorua Redwoods New Zealand

Box of Birds is one of my favourite trails in Rotorua. It has fun technical sections and loads of flow.

Its given grade 3 on the Whakarewarewa Forest maps but I think it definitely deserves grade 4. Have a look at the video and see what you think, let me know your thoughts in the comments below or on the YouTube video. I’ll put trail data and trailforks links below so you can easily find it and ride it for yourself.
