Trail Description
About this trail
The Twizel River Track is a fairly easy "family-fun-scenic" style of ride. It's great on a hot summer day with plenty of places for a swim or a spot of fishing.

After 12km, with Lake Benmore in full view up ahead, you can turn back or take the stony four wheel drive track up beside the Ohau River for a 26km loop.

Either way back gives you great views of the majestic peaks of the Southern Alps up ahead.

Review: I rode this as a loop, going down the Twizel River and returning up the Ohau River followed by the obvious gravel road and bike trail alongside highway 8 back to the car. Next time I'll just go down the Twizel River Track and return the same way as it's a more pleasant trail.

I rode it in winter, hence the horrible photos. It's best as a sunny day summer ride.
