The Strathmore Saddle is the first of 4 saddles on the Forgotten World Highway travelling north from Stratford to Taumaranui.

 

It's just a small rest area, but it is worth stopping for a rest and to take in the rugged view. 

 

There is s plaque describing the significance and challenges presented by the saddle.
