View from campsite at Lake Tennyson west to Mailing Pass (centre)

This ride was part of a three day road trip down the Rainbow road and back up the Molesworth road to make a great 250km trip on some of New Zealand's best remote back country unsealed roads. The track over the pass to the Waiau river is a four wheel track which provided an easy 16km (or 20km from lake campsite), 1-1.5 hour return trip from the carpark on the Wairau - Hanmer Springs Hydro road to Mailing Pass.
