Kaiwhakauka Track Details
This old tramping track has been upgraded as part of the New Zealand Cycle Trail project, and now provides a stunning alternative route to the Bridge to Nowhere ride.
Consists of 50% old 4WD tracks and 50% single track after you pass into the Whanganui National Park.
Start from Whakahoro, either 52km's from National Park, or 65km's from Taumaranui and mostly downhill and well signposted if cycling. Alternatively, drive down Oio Rd from State Highway 4, 2km's south of Owhango.
