Welcome Rock Trails is a private trail on private land, prior payment and booking is required online before embarking on this journey. Suitable for mountain bikers or hikers with the option of overnighting in one of our back country huts.
This trail is a single track, cross country mountain bike/hiking trail. Hand built on one of NZ's longest historic water races (water races were channels cut across a hillside bringing water from streams to places where gold was mined). We have called this trail ' The Roaring Lion Trail' as it follows the historic Roaring Lion water race.
Welcome Rock Trails prides itself on being a premier private hiking and mountain bike trail that offers historical and ecological guidance. Here you will find a hand built trail located within remote, native, high country farmland that is cloaked in stunning scenery. We are easy to get to and you will find us after a quick one hour drive from Queenstown. At Welcome Rock Trails you will find a truly unique Southern pioneering adventure. A day out of Queenstown with our experienced, local guide will enlighten those with a keen sense of adventure, culture, place and preservation.
You will be transported to the settlement of Garston, met by our experienced, local guide who will enlighten those with a keen sense of adventure, culture, place and preservation. You will be transported to the start of the trail (Historic Ski Hut Nevis Road, Garston). You will then embark on your journey along the 21km hand built single track trail. Once the trail is finished you will be picked up in Garston to return to your destination.
