Fishers Track

Regional Ride

Ruapehu, North Island

This track which leaves from National Park is often missed by visitors and is an excellent ride for the beginner to intermediate mountain biker. Leaving National Park from the northwest corner of town, you'll follow the Fishers Road signpost and the gravel road will eventually turn into a 4WD track as it heads into thick native forest.

Coming out of the forest after about 4 km of gradual elevation rise, you'll have six kms of downhill bliss through farmland. The 4WD track will again meet a gravel road and veer right when you reach a three way intersection. Continue on this gravel road for 12 kms before a trying 650 meter climb back to the road which will take you all the way to Raurimu.

This smooth ride is great if you're after a break from the more trying off-road tracks of the area.
