Trail Description
About this trail
Vehicles are rare on this remote, back country gravel road - the highest public road in New Zealand. Snow will close the road for some of the winter months and temperatures can be sweltering in summer. There are over 20 river crossings but they are not very deep. You'll climb nearly 1400 metres ( 4600ft) to reach the summit at 1270 metres.

People ride this road for the physical challenge, the good of their bodies and the peace of their souls. The views are stupendous on a clear day, the geology is majestic and the air is pure and clean.

Review: This remote back country gravel road makes a challenging mountain bike ride for those who like a good workout while enjoying dramatic panoramic views. It's not a mountain bike trail.

Review: Hard work with a large climb at each end but the spectacular scenery, nice clean river crossings make it worth ever minute!
