Started from Burger King Hastings. As good a place as any to start. Crap coffee though.
Turn left off the main road. Time for some fun.
Good spots for photography from the ridges.
Road narrows in places and a couple of blind crests to get the heart going. Watch for gravel from driveways in places.
Time for a blast.
Care over the intersection
Great scenery, good photo spots.
Can be very slipery if frosty or wet
Can turn right for a scenic drive to the Ruahine Forest Park, even a paddle in the Makaroro River at the end of Wakarara Road if its warm. Route turns left here
Good twisty spots.
Historic village and Dept of Conservation field centre for information about Ruahine Forest Park.

Wonderful country general store here. Petrol, snacks and good coffee. Nice stop for lunch and decision time for the next phase of the ride.
