Queenstown is a mountain biker's playground, boasting three lift-assisted parks, quality gravity-fed downhill biking, and a huge variety of trails to suit riders of all abilities and styles.
Riders from all over New Zealand (and around the world) come to Queenstown to experience the challenge of iconic mountain bike trails in spectacular alpine scenery.
Queenstown is the place where icons come to ride, with world famous bike parks, excellent trails and diversity of terrain to suit all styles. Queenstown mountain bike trails range from fun, flowy trails, to steep descents, scenic forest trails and technical singletrack. You’ll find downhill, enduro, cross country and jump tracks.
We may be known for our iconic trails like Rude Rock, Huck Yeah and Salmon Run, but there’s something 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, just getting started, or fancy 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, open year round in the heart of town. If you’re the type of person who wants to earn their turns, you can always pedal up, or hire an e-bike! Or head to the mountains for Cardrona and Coronet Peak’s epic descents. Gorge Road Jump Park is a legendary dirt jump playground for hardtail and BMX 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 mountain bike-loving 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. Rub shoulders with pro athletes who come to Queenstown to train for Crankworx and other major events.
Hire all the gear you need, with expert bike hire crews, bike shops, and trail transport. When you’re done riding, Queenstown’s vibrant après bike scene is packed with excellent bike-friendly options for a cold local brew, tasty eats, and a good yarn about your day on the trails.
