From Twizel, you will ride along Mackenzie Drive, Nuns Veil Road and Glen Lyon Road to the Loch Cameron Canal Bridge. Be mindful to remain on the northern side of the canal road and ride until you reach Lake Ohau. Once you hit Lake Ohau, you will get onto an unpaved trail to the Ohau Weir. YOU NEED TO CHECK LAKE LEVELS BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS PART OF THE RIDE. The weir will eventually meet up with the paved Lake Ohau Road which you take to the lodge.
