New to the site, how kosher is it to take the boy ( 10 year old ) on a KTM 65 on some of these trails? Down in Ohakune over the summer and wanting to get out and have some fun. Or does anyone know of some good trails to take him on if its not a good idea around here?

Hi @yeager

I’d think the 42nd might be a bit much but Pokaka Mill area might be suitable along with Fishers Track. Also have a look at Ratamaire Road and Ohakune Domain.

Remember though that all of these tracks are legal roads and strictly speaking require any vehicle to have a WOF and Reg and may have other traffic on them. The best options is probably Pokaka Mill, though there may be campers in there that won’t appreciate and 10 year old zipping around, you won’t know till you get there.
