Gorge Road

Gorge Road

Gorge Road runs south of the Manawatu Gorge entrance, on the east side of the Rhine Range. This a picturesque drive, with a short section alongside the Manawatu River.

From the east side of Ruahine Forest Park, head south back to the east entrance of the gorge. There is a large reserve where you can camp, as well as access to the river and the Manawatu Gorge Track. Cross the river on the one lane bridge, then head along Gorge Road until you reach Pahiatua Aokautere Road, which will take you over the Tararua Forest Park back to Palmerston.
