Review: I haven't ridden Rangataua Road but I'm fairly sure that if you're in Ohakune and looking for a ride then the Old Coach Road is a better option. Here is a description of Rangataua Road from http://www.the-hobbit.co.nz/activities-ohakune.html "Rangataua Road is an old metal forest road of approximately 12km, located via Karioi Station Road off SH 49) that winds through the picturesque Rangataua Forest on the lower the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. The suggested route is shown on the Ohakune Scenic Trail Loop Map - travel the 4.6km North Track from point J to G returning to Rangataua via Middle Track and the metal track alongside the railway. Both these tracks are single bike trails. West and Middle Track have other users and may be in poor condition when wet." For a trail map look here: www.tcb.nz/media/web_images/Rangataua map.pdf
