Lake Ngahewa / Rainbow Mountain

Rogaine Off Road/Trail

The OBOP (Orienteering Bay of Plenty) Rogaine at Ngahiwa is on private farmland located near Rainbow Mountain and Lake Ngahiwa.

There are checkpoints/controls for everyone: 10 suitable for absolute beginners, which are very near handrails like tracks and fences - yellow standard controls; 10 orange standard controls, which are achievable for newer orienteers; and 10 red controls which are designed for experienced orienteers.

Many people will be able to get controls that are more difficult than their usual abilities because a lot of people around you are going to them as well. There will be experienced orienteers available to help with coaching before and after each event, with an opportunity to go and help pick up controls after the event.
