The Gorge Road Jump Park experience
A legendary Queenstown institution that attracts dirt jump enthusiasts from around the world, this spectacular dirt jump facility for BMX and Mountain Bikes, is created and maintained by the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club.
The jump park has been described as “a work of art, a labour of love, and a training ground for some of the world’s best athletes.” Free style mountain biker Matt Jones called them the best dirt jumps in the world. And Gorge Road is every bit as good as that sounds.
A huge area, packed with more than 40 dirt jumps, the jump park is as much an art installation as a massive playground for hardtails and BMX bikes. There are lines for beginners and pros. And it’s completely free to use.
Even if you’re not a dirt jumper yourself, Gorge Road is well worth a visit to check out the impressive acrobatics from locals and visiting pros.
