Cycling the Old Coach Road, Ohakune
Forgot a day in the mountains and afternoon tea at the Chateau, it’s all about the great outdoors. Hop onto either a rented bike or your own trusty mountain bike and explore the Ohakune Old Coach Road. This is an all day cycle option.
This is one of those “something-for-everyone” kind of rides. You’ll have your dose of impressive mountain views, forest and history. The Old Coach Road was used for horse-drawn coaches, which now connects Horopito and Ohakune. There are equal uphill and downhill sections in the pretty native forest of the Tongariro National Park.Two highlights include the 45 metre-high Hapuwhenu Viaduct and the Old Train Tunnel, both looking out-of-place amongst native bush. There are plenty of information panels to read should you need an excuse to rest. Check Ohakune Old Coach Road for details.
