One of the main reasons for the formation of the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club was to engage with the larger community in the building of MTB trails in the region. The club works closely with the Department of Conservation, Queenstown Lakes District Council and landowners in building new trails and maintaining the existing trail network.
Queenstown Mountain Bike Club develop and maintain a wide variety of local mountain bike trails. All QMTBC trails are free for the public to ride but please respect any trail closures you may come across. If you're keen to get involved with building new mountain bike trails or maintaining your favourites, QMTBC hold voluntary trail digs every Wednesday night. Follow our Facebook page for more details.
SKIPPERS PACK TRACK
Skippers Canyon was home to gold miners in the 1860s. The scenery is spectacular with golden tussock, steep mountain walls and awesome rock formations which makes the ride out up Skippers Road worthwhile. All the mountain bike trails into Skippers are technical and suited to confident intermediate bikers.
CORONET PEAK XC
The best route to get to the top of the mountain and back down again, this is an absolute favourite for a summer's evening. The Coronet XC trail is a mix of swooping corners and flowing ridge lines with the occasional technical rocky section to make it even more fun. To find the trail, ride past the base building and past the Meadows Chairlift and you’ll find it at the top of the magic carpet.
A world class facility, precision built and maintained by a large local crew. The lines here are whatever you can imagine! Open in the summer, grab a hose, spray and ride away! Perfect for BMX and Dirt Jump Bikes of ALL levels! It's even a good spot to hang out and watch the locals do their thing! Please note: The park is generally open from
mid-November until May, depending on weather.
