Trail map
There are lots of mountain bike trails to take at the Queenstown Bike Park. With the longest run being 6km, it’s easy to spend a few hours riding around the tracks. The trails range between Grade 2: Green to Grade 6: Double black – only for the adventurous! Each track has a theme, such as “Hobbit” which has scenery reminiscent of the film with beech forest, rocks and drops. The beautiful yet rugged terrain will mean you won’t forget any of the trails you ride.

Season passes
For local mountain bikers, the Queenstown Bike Park season passes are a great, affordable option for any enthusiast. Season pass holders are offered a range of benefits to compliment every mountain biking season. It’s well worth buying the pass, even if you only plan to go a few times.

Just like any outdoor pursuit, mountain biking has lots of safety tips to keep everyone safe while riding. New Zealand has high standards of safety regulations for all activities and attractions, ensuring tourists and locals enjoy them whilst not needing to worry.
