This ride up to the top of Obelisk (1682m) on Old Man Range, rewards those who can navigate the way with some incredible scenery and rock formations.

Take NZTopo50 CC13 Alexandra, a compass, and/or a GPS to make sure you don't get lost. This ride is all on 4WD and gravel roads with a bit of pushing down an old fenceline. If you have time and want to explore, study the Topo map for other features to check out as there are old goldmines and historical huts in the area.

Please stick to the marked routes as many of these tracks are over private land. Don't attempt during winter as the range will be under snow, or during lambing season (mid October to mid-November).

Access Info

From Alexandra, head over the main bridge and then to the end of Blackman Rd.
