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
