Berm Buster 2 Day Trail ride
Suzuki Berm Buster is another classic 2 day trail ride event. The event takes place 25 minutes out of Taupo on the Taupo to Napier Road (SH5) and it located right next to the Kaimanawa Forest Park (native bush). The trails are more open and flowing than the Suzuki Trail Blazer series with patches of native bush, some hill climbs and lots of Expert only sections. However most of the 100 km of trail is still very family and novice friendly with special kids and Novice tracks.
