Then, you mountain bike down constantly changing scenery from rocky farm track through a mountain gorge, a remnant beech forest, down grassy banks and, finally, you end up on the shores of the beautiful Lake Ohau. There’s a short cycle along the gravel lakeside road to the pick up point where you have some options.

  1. You can be collected and driven back to Twizel.
  2. If you are riding the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, at the head of the lake you are able to rejoin the A2O Cycle Trail and continue on to Ohau Village,
