Mountain Biking Twizel River Trail
#193 of 381 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#10181 in the world
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.
