My husband and I regularly workout and lift weights, and the first half of this was a challenge for us. Some of the trail is quite steep and narrow. That being said, we were looking for a good workout and we got it! The sign...More

We took the gondola up for the views and decided to hike down. From the top, this starts out pretty easy and gets quite steeper in a few sections. While not a difficult trail, you should definitely be in sturdy shoes for this one! Most...More

I walked this trail in order to make a paragliding appointment (as an aside, the paragliding was cancelled). I was assuming it would be quick and easy, based on the description. It was quite tricky in places, and takes about an hour one way. I...More

We started at 0800 and were rewarded with hardly any on the trial. I think I counted about 4 others. It was lovely, cool and an utter pleasure to walk through the bush, take in the meandering path, as well as get the heart rate...More

This is a good, moderate hike. The start has 100' that parallels the mountain bike track, but it goes in a different direction pretty quick after that. There's some definite elevation gain, so expect to work up a sweat. You can walk it or if...More

Took the Tiki Trail down to Queenstown after taking the dirt road up (which starts at Glasgow St/Lomond Cres) to the top. The Tiki Trail is not fun, easy, or direct - it has many steps, stairs, is narrow, and not that exciting. The dirt...More

I love this walk! I've lost count of the number of times I've done it, allow 40mins for fast fit walkers, 50mins+ for slower walkers. The first 10mins of so of the walk are the steepest (I think anyway), so if you can get past...More

Watching the crazy mountain bike riders scream down the hill and hearing the zip line participants screaming down their ride too made this a unique walk. Well worth it.

This can be done in 45 minutes each direction. It was rather muddy the day I went so I only walked up. Coming down I took the gondola. $25 but worth it since it would pretty much save me from slipping down the muddy path:D...More

One of the best viewings to Queenstown and its hills, perfect walk up to one hour to reach Skyline and enjoy some rest with a drink and fries.

I climbed the trail solo without any issues. It’s a clearly marked trail and you will most likely pass others along the way. Enjoy!
