IntroductionWalk or mountain bike through native forest and farmland from Opouri Saddle down to Harvey Bay (Duncan Bay).
This is a 3 km track through native forest and farmland from Opouri Saddle down to Harvey Bay (Duncan Bay). It is very steep and rocky in places and the streams are not bridged.
You can mountain bike on Opouri Bridle Track - a fun downhill alternative to the road, however, most riders will find parts of the track unrideable.
This track is not suitable for horses. This track follows the path of a former bridle track however it is a lot steeper than usual bridle tracks and is no longer suitable for horses due to it being so steep, narrow and rocky.
You can get to this track from the Tennyson Inlet Road off State Highway 6 just past Rai Valley.
