Geocache Description:

The Timber Trail is a two day mountain bike ride through Pureora forest from Pureora Village to Ongarue, near Taumarunui.  Total distance is 85km and the trail is graded 2-3 (Easy - Intermediate).  Enjoy majestic native forest, spectacular suspension bridges built especially for the trail and the rich history of this region. 

Free camping is available at Piropiro Flats - about half way along the trail at the 40 km mark.  There is road access for vehicles to this campsite.  It is a very large grassy clearing with long drop toilets provided.  The only water supply is from the nearby stream.  There are plans to build a lodge here for the cycle trail in the future.  The cache is a 200 ml sistema container.
