Area - Raukumara Forest Park
The Raukumara Forest Park is one of the least developed or visited tracts of bush in the North Island. The park covers 115,000 hectares of extremely rugged bush-clad land and offers a wide variety of recreational opportunites for visitors including:
- mountain biking the scenic and challenging Otipi Road,
- the opportunity to climb Mount Hikurangi, the first place on mainland New Zealand to see the sun; and
- Grade 4 rafting on the Motu River, which is renowned for its unspoiled beauty and isolation.
