A top ride with impressive vistas, good long descents , great huts for conversing with like minded bikers & trampers.
Certainly the work to get the gradient to a rideable level has been tremendous, hats off to the crews that built & maintain the track.
Totally recommended to both trampers & bikers.

This was our 6th time to do part of the Old Ghost Road.
We have done it several times on the Lyell end and twice on the Seddonville end. - There are lots of options. Doing the Helibike is also a great option.

What an amazing journey this is wether you cycle or walk.
The track is fantastic , so many people ( Mokihinui -Lyall Back country Trust “have contributed physically & mentally so much time it is very humbling & greatly appreciated.
It’s a must do for every fit & active tramper or cyclist.
Huts are well positioned. Clean tidy , comfy with gas cookers,plates, cutlery, composting toilets, basic wash rooms .
The scenery is absolutely stunning every day.

What a wonderful engineering achievement to get all the infrastructure up and running to open up our back country to the world - as long as you're prepared for all weathers and to 'rough it a bit!' It's a challenging but exciting journey in such mixed terrain. Our group of 14 came off the track yesterday.
Thanks so much to Barry at Buller Adventures for our food drop by helicopter and car relocation - he went above and beyond and was much appreciated by all at Ghost Lake Hut!

my favourite thing was the birds, delightful south island robins, wekas, piwakawakas to name a few. The huts are sufficient, some better lay outs than others but all Ok. Be prepared for sandflies down by the Mokihinui River.Yes the scenery is something else SO south island, and so varied as well. Not being a seasoned walker I found the distances and terrain quite challenging. The steep drop offs are not for the faint hearted, but the true adventurer will be greatly satisfied - the Old Ghost Road delivers.
