North Island Trails

The North Island has a diverse range of trail running on offer, much of it within easy reach of the main centres. Everything from lush tropical rain forest, golden sand east coast beaches, wild black sand west coast beaches, lakes, rivers, volcanoes, tussock ridges and mountain ranges.

We have grouped the Wild Trails runs by area. Just click on any of the area links below and you’ll get a brief description of the area, useful links for finding out more about it, and of course our smorgasbord menu of trail running appetisers, main courses and desserts. Bon appetit you Wild Things.

Note: we rely on contributions from the Running Wild community to make this guide as comprehensive and useful as possible. Please help by sharing your favourite runs with us – just download a Wild Trails Template, fill it out and return by email. Thanks for your help.
