Where else can you ride past mining relics of a bygone era, ascend through picturesque native forest and break out onto alpine tops offering breathtaking views?
Descend into open river valleys littered with lakes and tarns and weave through giant podocarp rainforest inhabited by abundant wildlife?
Sidle along the slopes of a stunning river gorge and stay in purpose-built huts occupying the most commanding of positions?
You can do this and more on The Old Ghost Road.
The Old Ghost Road is joint initiative led by the Mokihinui-Lyell Backcountry Trust supported by the New Zealand Cycle Trail Project, Development West Coast, Solid Energy New Zealand Ltd and the Gough Group.
