Trail Updates

The latest trail updates for the Mountains to Sea Cycle Trail, and other bike rides in the Ruapehu and Whanganui regions.

Please take care, stay safe - and we look forward to welcoming you back when things return to normal. 

  • The Mangapurua track is now closed for the Winter season.  No access past the Mangapurua Trig.  Check back in Spring, once the team have worked their magic.

(Don't be tempted to go through as there is a significant slip on the track in the bluffs area - do not endanger yourself or anyone else - thanks)

  • The Kaiwhakauka track is open.  Please note care should be taken in some areas - refer to the need to know section.

  • Kaiwhakauka track: ALL riders please walk your bikes between you and the fall hazard side through the first 4kms after the Whanganui National Park boundary gate. (This is the narrow single track section)   If you are unsure of any section – take a moment to dismount and walk. (the team are working on making this section safer and we are focused on ensuring riders have a great journey)

  • Be aware from time to time there maybe rocks caused by slipping along the road after heavy rain on the Whanganui River Road.


  • The new bridge opening at ┼¬pokongaro has been delayed - however we are all looking forward to riding the new section and will advise once open.
