Taramea track

This already popular loop track is the newest addition to the Council's tracks.

Start: Mid section of the Rapaki Track near Cattle Yards.

Finish: Same as starting point.

Access: Either end of the Rapaki Track.

Signage: At the start and throughout.


From the reserve entrance sign the track climbs a 4WD track before leading onto a single track.

Meander slowly uphill through rocky terrain before a faster undulating section leads into a flowing fun descent.

The track then contours across the northern aspect of the Reserve, offering stellar views across the city and towards the southern alps. 

Final section is on a fast gravel surface, which brings riders back to a point where it’s easy to do another loop, or head back out onto Rapaki Track.
