Skyline announced recently that it will be investing $75,000 into a new beginner/intermediate trail in the Queenstown Bike Park. The new trail will start at the halfway clearing and traverse across the face of the hill and drop down to the bottom terminal of the Gondola. It will cross some of the existing trails and hopefully open up the rest of this relatively under utilised area for more advanced trails.
There is a Stuff article about it here that also credits the club for it’s work building many of the trails in the reserve. Although, interestingly, it fails to credit the less official trail builders that built many of the now QLDC signposted trails in the park!
