In 2010 the Glacier Country Mtb Club in Franz Josef, South Westland was granted access to some pristine, privately owned native rainforest alongside the Tatare Stream. They constructed 1.7 km of flowing single track, named the Faultline Track. The Slush Fund helped out with a set of tools.
Fast forward a few years and in late 2022 West Coast tourism authorities released a feasibility report into a four-day 154 km cycling trail from Ōkārito Lagoon to Fox Glacier via Franz Josef. The trail would aim to be a part of the Ngā Haerenga New Zealand Cycle Trails.
