Old Woman Range Track is located in the Kopuwai Conservation Area. It’s an old gold mining track. Restricted access. Open in summer during dry conditions only. 4wd vehicle required. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging.
The zone is affected by adverse weather. But even in the summer the conditions can quickly turn nasty. The track is rather remote, so you need to be prepared. No mobile phone coverage so you will be on your own in the middle of nowhere if you get stuck. Never drive this trail alone. Vehicles are rare here. At the summit there’s a mountain hut, with spectacular panoramic views of the Central Otago landscapes.
