Street Address
“The hill behind Te Kiteroa Lodge has several excellent walking and Mountain Biking trails you can follow. The White Horse Walkway (hiking only) is the most direct route to the top of the hill lookout. The White Horse Big Easy trail is well loved by both bike riders and walkers. This trail follows and longer, gentle incline from the end of Point Bush Road to the top of the White Horse monument and lookout point. ”
