This is an out and back ride with a mix of bike carrying. What looks un-rideable as you carry your bike on the way out, is a good fun technical ride on the way back. Most fun is had riding back. Either turn around at the end of the tight switchbacks above where the Tikitiki Stream and Kaipo River join, or head on to Oamaru hut, another 1.5hrs, for an overnighter.

Below from Classic NZ Mountain Bike Rides:

The semi-rideable track climbs 330m from the carpark to a clearing where the old Te Iringa Hut used to be, then skirts around Mt Te Iringa (1241m) before dropping down to a swingbridge just downstream from the junction of Tikitiki Stream and Kaipo River.

Cross the swingbridge and turn left to take the main track down the Kaipo Valley to Oamaru Hut (12 bunks) by the confluence of the Kaipo and Oamaru rivers.

This is a big day packed with with technical riding, so it is recommend staying the night at the hut overnight and soaking up the wilderness, rather than racing through. From here you have to ride back the same way you came as all other tracks are closed to bikes..

Access Info
