Queenstown mountain bike parks & jump parks

There are six bike parks in and around Queenstown. Get riding with our guide to these top New Zealand bike parks, and experience some of the best gravity-fed and enduro trails in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Queenstown Bike Park is world-class community recreations reserve with over 30 trails and 450 metres of vertical descent, accessible from the heart of town. Hitch your bike to the Skyline Gondola six months a year, or if you're the type of person who wants to earn their turns, you can pedal up or hire an e-bike year round. 

Grab yourself a day pass and get stuck into iconic trails like Huck Yeah and G.S.D. Rated one of the best mountain bike parks in the world, many pro-riders visit the Queenstown Mountain Bike Park for off-season training.

Take your own bike up the chairlift on Coronet Peak or rent on the mountain. With fun, flowy trails from grade 3 to grade 5, enjoy epic descents with incredible views. Coronet is also home to Rude Rock and some precipitous grade 5 action at Slip Saddle. Whether by shuttle, pedal power or chairlift, Coronet delivers the goods!

New Zealand’s highest mountain bike park, Cardrona has 600 metres of downhill trails with lift access and over 1270 metres if you tackle the infamous Peak to Pub. There’s a free zone for learners and mountain bike lessons to progress your skills.

Other Queenstown bike parks include 7 Mile Scenic Reserve Mountain Bike Park, with its more flowing XC, Enduro and progressive jump trails. Gorge Road Jump Park is a massive playground for hardtail and BMX. And the Queenstown Skate & BMX Park is a great wee hangout with fun obstacles for all ages and abilities.
