Rich in natural and cultural heritage, this fascinating ride follows an old byway through primeval forest, past railway relics, and over cobblestones.
Ohakune’s Old Coach Road is a deservedly popular half-day adventure offering an enticing mix of pioneer stories, spectacular forest, volcanic scenery and some fast, flowing riding. It follows a re-discovered cobblestone road that once bridged a gap in the railway line before the ends were connected in 1909, and skirts World Heritage-listed Tongariro National Park for much of the way.
Mostly smooth terrain and just a few moderate hill climbs make this trail suitable for most abilities. More ambitious riders can carry on to complete more challenging sections of the multi-day Mountains to Sea Cycle Trail, of which the Old Coach Road is a part.

The rooms at the Powderhorn Chateau boast high wooden ceilings and full timber interiors giving you a Swiss chalet feel. All rooms have their own ensuites and sitting areas to enjoy your morning coffee. Balconies, bathtubs and twin configuration available on direct request with the hotel.
