The Mangatapu Track is an alternative cycle touring route into Nelson following a rough steep road over the Mangatapu Saddle - approximately 800m above sea level.
Because of the track condition and gradient this route is only suitable for mountain bikes and sturdy off-road capable touring bikes with low gearing.
It passes the historic site of the Mangatapu Murders, where 5 men were killed in 1866.
