We walked to Hapuawhenua viaduct with our 8 and 5 year olds. The coach road takes a bit of reaching from Ohakune station -- the initial part of the walk is along roads, but once you get to the Old Coach road itself, you get...More

Not too short, not too long, a great bike ride for couples. Don't be put off by the initial incline on the grassy old coach road, it soon flattens out on the top before dropping down towards the viaduct. Really fun ride leading to an...More

Great ride from Horopito to Ohakune. We rode with two 13 year olds who had a blast. Took us about 1 hour 30 to complete with a short stop at the viaduct- we did push hard so expect 2-3 hours if your taking your time....More

We got a shuttle ride to Horopito ($15 per person) then walked back to Ohakune. Stunning and varied scenery and really interesting information boards. Rain had been forecast but we were really lucky with the weather. Track was good throughout the 15kms and we took...More

Our family had a great time riding this trail. It has an interesting history and varied track with cobbled, grass and gravel surfaces. Our 8 year old walked up some sections, and we were glad to be on bikes with suspension going over the cobbles....More

It was a overcast, spitting rain day that was perfect for this lovely bush walk, making you feel like you were in a rainforest for the most part. This track can be done on mountain bike as well and having only walked it I would...More

Gives you a view of some great scenery and local engineering history. An interesting route which engenders respect for the early coach travellers, the road and railway builders. An off road, so nearly all traffic free ride, excitement and challenge levels can be varied to...More

An interesting and not too challenging route. Lovely views and scary viaducts - but you don't have to ride them if you don't want to. Some of the route has cobbles which are rough but ok to ride. Really interesting boards with facts on the...More
