... in there. The lookout points were breathtaking. I got to see people doing some pretty impressive mountain biking through there as well! The second walk I went on was around 4km and took me through the forest - some of the redwood trees were just incredibly massive. That night there was a night market in the town center, and so I got to go taste some of the food from local restaurants and saw some dancing and music ...
... would definitely recommend it if you are in the area.
Sunday was less exciting, but no less fun. We checked out of the hostel and headed a bit south to the Buried Village. This is the site of the 1886 eruption of the Tarawera volcano, which buried several towns nearby with between 1.5m and 15m of hot mud.
