The Great Ride
The Queenstown Trail, New Zealand's Most Popular Great Ride!
The Queenstown Trail is one of New Zealands's 22 Great Rides, a network of trails that provide a safe and sustainable way to explore New Zealand's special places. Riding our 'Great Ride', the Queenstown Trail allows you to explore Queenstown by bike (or on foot) via 130kms of spectacular off-road trails. Your journey starts on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and takes you from Queenstown to Gibbston, returning via historic Arrowtown. You'll take in a plethora of lakes and mountains, rivers, bridges and spectacular views.
A great way to see the other (quieter) side to Queenstown.
Please also consider supporting the work of the Queenstown Trails Trust by donating or becoming a Friend of the Trust. If you love our trails, as little as the price of a couple of coffees each month can safeguard the future of the trails and help us expand our trail network.
