Ride along the historic Ohakune Old Coach Road at your own pace on this 4-hour unguided bike trail. This native bush corridor on the slopes of Mount Ruapehu is an exciting adventure, a journey back in time. Ride past the concrete piers for the bridge which crossed the Haeremaere Stream on the original railway alignment, the steel lattice Taonui Railway Viaduct, and enjoy expansive views across the Waimarino Plains and of the mighty Mt Ruapehu, magnificent Rimu trees and of course the Hapuawhenua Viaduct. A fantastic day ride for people of all ages and abilities.

From Ohkaune there is a 3 km uphill grind over cobble stones, the original surface of the Old coach Road. Therefore it is rough going and we were very glad of our battery assistance. Great track although very narrow and need to take it easy in some parts. Wonderful scenery
