The Western Okataina Track is a highly recommended out and back epic mountain bike ride. After reaching the high point, we do not suggest riding down to Lake Okataina Rd as the climb back is brutal. You are better to simply turn around at the high point and ride back the way you came.
Thank you to Bike Culture for helping build this route.

|Rode south to North. Great descent to Okataina with a few washout ruts. Grade 4. Some of the latter climbs have some deeeep ruts too that are unrideable.|
