These are great cycling trails, we really enjoyed cycling them, but there is a bit of an issue with the signs. We found it easy to get lost.
The map from the isite is good but there needs to be better detail of the roads and junctions, there is a lack of signs and getting your bearings may be a challenge,
Ideally more signs, more regular trail indicator post markers maybe with numbers that are on the map? Better road markings on the sealed sections in town where it’s easy to get confused.
Other that that it’s a must do if your into it. Can be as long or as short a ride as you like.
We will be back and probably be more prepared with GPS and battery packs

I ride this quite frequently. Because I am local and because of its proximity I generally just do the Water Ride but there is a huge network of rides to explore. One thing I love about the Water Ride is experiencing the many forms of bird life’s long the way, I generally have frequent stops to look and photograph the many species that live in this area

We cycled Hawke's Bay Trails from Havelock North to Hygge Cafe at Clifton and back. It was a wonderful experience for my partner and I - we loved the elevated stopbanks beside the Tukituki River, and the view over orchards and fields. The Tukituki river mouth was beautiful and we were so relaxed cycling along the coastal pathway. After lunch at Hygge we had an easy ride back to Havelock and felt like we'd had a real adventure!! :-0

I love the ride along the coast from Marine Parade to Bay View, great views, great cafes and bars en-route, lovely spots to stop and take photos, or have a picnic.

We spent a few days 8n the Hawkes Bay Napier region rrying out the tracks, out of the 4 tracks we did they are all highly Recommended.
They are all well sign posted and the riding tracks are good surfaces.
Only let down there is a few gates that you have to get off your bikes and manually open which can slow you down a bit.
Most of the rides are flat.

From along the seafront to stop banks by the orchards we have enjoyed many of the Hawkes Bay cycle tracks. People are usually friendly and courteous en route.

These trails are really awesome and family friendly. They are mostly flat and you can do them in sections over several days or visits. Head along the coast, through the wetlands or inland to the wineries and pubs. Brilliant!

If you enjoy cycling, the Hawke's Bay Trails are a "must"! The ride from Napier to Bay View follows the Pacific Coast and the views are absolutely stunning. We also rode from Napier to Taradale, passing the beautiful Ahuriri Estuary, on our way to the wineries on Church Road. Very fun! The trails are Grade 1 (Easiest) and the scenery is outstanding.

Thoroughly enjoyed a full day of cycling round the Hawkes Bay area. Started along the coastal path, then followed the river past orchards and farm land to Silk Chocolate Factory. After a delicious iced chocolate we got back on the bikes and cycled out to Puketapu, stopping at The Puketapu Pub for lunch (the Kiwi Burger was excellent!) and Church Road Winery later in the day to sample some local favourites. The last leg of our ride took us through the wetlands, where we joined back up with the coastal path.

Pleased you enjoyed your ride on our trails - we appreciate the feedback. Clearview is an excellent choice to stop and refuel, on the Landscapes ride. We continually seek to improve the experience on the trails, if you could complete our short survey at our website it would be appreciated, and you could win a cycle trail book. Thank you in advance.
