Queenstown to Jack's Point

This spectacular trail is a ride of two halves and not for the fainthearted!

The first 12kms of this trail is an easy, flat and picturesque ride following the edge of the Lake Wakatipu, work your way around the Frankton Arm to Kelvin Heights, through Jardine Park and onto the magnificent Jack's Point Trail, prepare for tight corners and steep climbs but be WOWWED by epic views as you hug the lake. Treat yourself to lunch at Jack's Point clubhouse and a bike taxi home.
