The Queenstown Trail


The Queenstown Trail links a series of trails within the Wakatipu Basin as you travel from Queenstown Bay, via Frankton, Lake Hayes, the historic goldming town of Arrowtown and the wine producing Gibbston area.

There are a number of combinations that can be completed, however a favourite combination for a one day ride is:

Arrow River Bridges Ride – 16km 
Zigzag across the 5 bridges that cross the Arrow River as you cycle from Gibbston to Arrowtown.
Arrowtown to Queenstown (via Lake Hayes and Kawarau River) – 24.5km 
Ride from Arrowtown through Millbrook and around the shores of Lake Hayes the Kawarau and Shotover Rivers and Lake Wakatipu.  This ride finishes in downtown Queenstown.
