The Queenstown mountain bike club have just started talks with the QLDC to try and get the locals favourite Fernhill Loop track back into good shape on the Fernhill side. The track through the beech trees on the QBP side is pretty sweet thanks to the guys from Outside Sports who have been doing some great work clearing deadfalls to keep it open. The Fernhill Loop track was recently handed over to QLDC from DOC and the council don't currently have any funding available for maintaining it. Over the last couple of years the trail on the Fernhill side has taken a bit of a battering from some extreme weather which has caused a bit of damage to the trail including a large tree windfall that has caused the trail to be practically impassable. It's early days yet, but your club will be working hard with QLDC and local businesses to try to get this amazing trail back into shape all the way through to Fernhill for riders and walkers to enjoy for many years to come.
