Pukaki and Ohau Canals

Pukaki and Ohau Canals

From Loch Cameron, continue on towards Lake Ohau along the Ohau and Pukaki Canals. You can access the lake near the Ohau River mouth. Again, this is part of the Alps 2 Ocean cycle route.

Although the road is a dead end, you do get a fantastic view of Ben Ohau from a viewpoint between the river and the canal. If you have time, you can take a hike along the bike trail on the lake shore towards Ohau village.

On your return, take the east side of the canal which will take you over the Ohau Power Station to Lake Ruataniwha.
