Ohakune Old Coach Road

Last year Aaron rode the Old Coach Road with his friend Craig as part of a bike tour. But he loved it so much he took me back again. It is a nice ride on the edge of the Tongariro National Park between the farmland and the native forest, with a couple of old railway viaducts across some valleys to check out along the way. One way the track is 14 km, but we rode to the end and back - mostly down hill on the way back to Ohakune. 

We camped the night at the DOC campsite just inside Tongariro National Park at Mangawhero Stream, with amazing views of a pink Mt Ruapehu as the sun set.
