Lake2Lake Cycle Trail
A labour of love for our community and the very dedicated Fiordland Trails Trust, has given us a cycle trail of standout quality, opening up access to stunning Fiordland landscapes, right on the doorstep of the township of Te Anau.
The trail length is around 19km starting from the township of Te Anau, running alongside the lake then meets up with the Upper Waiau River. Someday soon this trail will be extended all the way to the beautiful Lake Manapouri but for now the trail ends at Balloon Loop, around half way down the river. The trail can be run, walked or biked and it is ideal for all ages and abilities as not only is it nice and wide at 2.2-2.5m but is rated a Grade 2 Easy.
This trail is worth spending some time on and you can bike some of it or all of it depending on how much time you have. There are a range of transport and bike hire options in town including e-bikes so how you tackle this one is up to you.
