    Ocean Beach Road lies on the southern cost of the Wairarapa. The ride is about 10km long and starts as a well formed sand track that gently winds it’s way along the beach past a number of weathered bach built in the traditional kiwi style that is rarely seen now. Where the bach end is a DOC campsite named Corner Creek which provides the most basic facilities.

    Once past the DOC campsite the trail climbs along the edge of the hill and starts to get steep and in places soft. Caution is required from here on as there is a significant drop off the side of the track.

    A group of local guys meet up and attempted to ride Ocean Beach but there’s been a large slip recently and currently the track is pretty much impassable.

    You can check out the ride report here: https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/forums/topic/wgtn-rideout/page/6/#post-18651

    @chris-adam took some drone footage of the slip
