Starting just outside Stratford (south of New Plymouth) we take the famous State Highway 43 (known locally as the ‘Forgotten World Highway’). This road climbs through some rugged, beautiful countryside. About half way up the road is Hobbit’s Hole (a local name for the Moki Tunnel). After the tunnel, there is a light gravel section so care should be taken. Later the route joins up with State Highway 4 and then down on to the the amazing Highway 3 towards New Plymouth. Spectacular scenery, loads of twisties and some fast straight sections make this an awesome ride. Sweeping corners mostly with some tighter ones over Mount Messenger and Tongaporutu Gorge.
