Overview

Fishers Track mountain bike trail includes a 520m descent through farmland and rural gravel roads. Be ready for a steady climb to the summit and then a long 17km downhill stretch. The track runs through a beautiful remote valley, but it is mostly gravel roads.

Need to Know

The end of the trail at the monument is in a remote area, and you'll need to arrange return transport. Contact Kiwi Mountain Bikes in National Park Village for transport and bike hire.

Description

Start from National Park Village at the end of Carroll Street over the railway crossing. Be ready for a steady climb to the summit followed by 17 kms of downhill along a grassy farm track and rural gravel roads with a gradual climb up to the finish point at the Kaitieke First World War Monument.
Fishers Track links up with the Bridge to Nowhere track in the Mangapurua Valley by taking a left at the Monument and riding 26km to Whakahoro where Oio Rd meets the Whanganui River.

History & Background

The end of the trail is at the Kaitieke First World War Memorial, devoted to the men of the area that fought and died in The Great War.
