On-leash | Loop walk or Point-to-point (up to you) | Distance: From 2 kms | Duration: From 30 mins | Difficulty: Easy and Medium | Good for hot days

Whakarewarewa Forest (also known as Redwood Forest Rotorua) has a huge network of short and longer walking and hiking tracks. No matter if you’d like to walk for an hour or four hours, Whakarewarewa has you covered.

Dogs need to be on a leash on all walking tracks as the paths are shared with families. Some of the tracks are also used with horses and/or for mountain biking.

The forest is great to walk during the day in summer as the trees shelter you and your furbaby from the hot sun.

The start for most of Whakarewarewa Forest’s walking tracks is at the parking for TreeWalk.

For some off-leash fun, just cross the street to Scion Tree Research Park and for a refreshing beverage, head to Eastwood Cafe.

Please note that dogs are not allowed on TreeWalk and Altitude as these are activities above the ground.
