Tongariro Forest Loop
(John McDonald Loop)

20km northeast of National Park

This is a fantastic trip for fit and skilled jungle rides with lots of outdoors experience. Choose a dry day and take grippy shoes, safety glasses, a long-sleeved top and full-fingered gloves. Expect a toitoi thrashing, a freezing tramp down a mountain stream and difficult navigation. In return for these tribulations, you will be rewarded with stunning scenery and an honest adventure.
