Trail Notes

You’ll be starting this ride in Queenstown which means you can start it with a coffee from one of the many local suppliers. There are also multiple options for refreshment stops along the way on this easy Grade 2 half day ride.

Begin at the Queenstown Gardens. Descend from the Kawarau Falls Bridge until you reach Kelvin Grove and the Queenstown Yacht Club. The Kelvin Heights Sculpture Trail (featuring some wonderful original sculptural artworks) loops around the golf course. As the trail nears Jardine Park, follow the signs via a short stretch of road, cycle along Grove Lane to Peninsula Road, turning right onto Poplar Drive for an easier route to Jardine Park and then retrace your steps.

But wait, there's more...
