Old Coach Road Trail

Walking or riding along the historic cobblestone Coach Road through a bush corridor on the slopes of Mount Ruapehu is an exciting adventure, a journey back in time. Magnificent native Rimu trees, native falcons screaming through the air, pigeons flying between the tree tops, the curved steel lattice of the Hapuawhenua Viaduct and of course, the old railway tunnel. 

This is a grade 2 cycleway which is appropriate for all including family groups with young children and those of us who are a bit older and dont want any challenges we cant handle.
