Ride through history on the Ōhakune Old Coach Road
PLACE
DESCRIPTION
undefined
Take an easy ride along a historic road that winds through native forest in Ruapehu. The Ōhakune Old Coach Road was once an integral part of New Zealand’s transport network. In the 1900s, the partially cobbled road linked two railheads on the main trunk line and was used to carry passengers and goods by horse and coach before the two points were linked in 1908. Today, the route is a grade two 15-kilometre, half-day ride suitable for families and cyclists with moderate fitness. Discover the remarkable engineering feat of the Hapuawhenua Viaduct, remnants of cobblestones through the bush, a curved tunnel and other railway relics. The forest is lush with birdlife and native trees including kahikatea, rimu, mataī and rātā. AA AATraveller Must Done
