42 Traverse Details
This ride is a vehicle track off state highway 47 to Owhango. Despite being vehicle track it is rutted and gnarled enough to entertain experienced riders. Can be extremely muddy to the point of gumming up gears. The river crossings provide opportunities for un-gumming things and were ridable but over bottom bracket. It is not recommended to do this track after heavy rains as not being able to cross the river would mean a long uphill ride back. There is a pub at the end of the road in Owhango for a well deserved beer.
It is recommended to take a topomap and gps/compass this is not somewhere you'd want to get lost.
The starting point is usually at the junction of Kapoors Road and Highway 47. Which on between Turangi and National Park, 18kms from National Park.
