Welcome to kiwi trails! This blog will give you reviews and knowledge about trails in New Zealand. I'm a keen trail runner and tramper who loves the outdoors. As I live in Waikato, many of the trails I post about will be from Waikato, Central Plateau, and Bay of Plenty, which are driving distance from my house. I will also attempt to have guest contributors on from time to time to give you a perspective of a mountain biker or to post about a favorite trail of theirs.
At times I will review gear that I use for tramping and/or running. Though I love trail running, I run slower than windows 98, so any times given is to give you a rough idea. I'm training to do 50 km in the Taupo Ultra this Spring, so hope to run a new trail every week as part of my training. When possible I will post maps, kilometers of the trail, and entry/exit points of the trail.
