Berm Buster is a classic trail ride event that continues all weekend long...all winter long...no matter what the weather!  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.   The trails are varied and flowing, some hill climbs, firebreaks, single track and fantastic optional Expert only sections.  However most of the 80 km of trail is still very family and novice friendly with special kids and Novice tracks. It's great value to get in on the weekend pass deal.
