Mountain Biking

Riders from all over New Zealand (and around the world) come to Queenstown to shred iconic mountain bike trails in spectacular alpine scenery.

Queenstown offers world-famous bike parks, excellent trails and diversity of terrain to suit all styles. Queenstown mountain bike trails range from fun, flow trails, to steep descents, scenic forest trails and technical singletrack. You’ll find downhill, enduro, cross country and jump tracks - so take your pick!

Queenstown is known for iconic trails like Rude Rock, Huck Yeah and Salmon Run, but there’s a ride for everyone, from beginner’s grade 2 Hammy’s Track to the extreme grade 5 GSD for rocks and roots and gnarly times. Whether you’re here to go hard, keen to progress your skills, or after a mellow ride - there’s a trail for you.

Accessible gravity-fed bike parks include Queenstown Bike Park, a community recreation reserve with over 30 trails and 450 metres of vertical descent. Pedal up to earn your turns, hire an e-bike or catch the gondola. Head to the mountains for Cardrona and Coronet Peak’s epic descents or send it on the popular Dream Track or Mini Dream jump lines at Wynyard Bike Park

Queenstown is home to a community of riders passionate about biking. The Queenstown Mountain Bike Club is purely run by volunteers who have worked for decades to build and maintain a network of trails so good that they attract the best riders in the world.
