Central North island has excellent mountain biking tracks: Craters of the Moon in Taupo, 42nd Traverse, Fishers Track, Old Coach Road, Mangapurua Valley just to name a few. Check with locals about the conditions of the tracks, in the winter some tracks are unrideable and with the pumice in the soil, you will ruin your brakes! Check weather and be prepared, a lot of these places have limited cell phone coverage and can be in very rural areas so you need to be self sufficient. Definitely bring a head light; it has often come to good use.

Hauhangatahi is one of the oldest volcanoes in the area and has been deemed a wilderness zone with in the Tongariro National Park. It’s an awesome walk with great views over the nation park from a different angle. If you are driving to Ohakune from national Park Village turn left at Erua, park your car, walk across the railway tracks, turn right and follow the tracks for 3 power poles, you will see a small wooden sign on the left hand side that says “track”. Follow this, it’s about an hour through the bush marked with tape, then follow the wooden stakes up to the top for another two hours to the top. Have a goody!
