I used Ben Lomond side to go up to the skyline gondola station and took this path to go down to QT. The trail was slippery, narrow, and steep. So be careful and prepare good trekking shoes. Avoid rainy days or a day after rain....More

Not the most interesting hike, but okay if you don't want spend the money on the gondola. Its just very steep and in the forest. Be mindful if it had just rained as I know a lot of people who fell down.

This is a nice alternative to taking the gondola back down. Beautiful forest. It's very wind-y and challenging at parts. My 10 year old managed ok, but got scared at some points. It took about 1 1/2 hours down for us. Be sure to take...More

Not for the faint-hearted who have a fear of heights or the elderly who are not used to hill-climbing! But quite a feat for anyone wanting a short, sharp challenge

Gondola in Queenstown is where every visitor goes. Few take this trail beyond the Cafe and the Luge. It is worth a while if you wish to add that little extra special memory. One and a half hour to the Ben Lomond Pass from the...More

The Tiki trail is a good but steep one hour hike uphill to the top of the gondola. Some fun chair sculptures along the way. Not too busy as most people take the gondola to the top. Great views of Queenstown from the top make...More

good 1 hr at my slow pace walk. It's going over rocks and some stairs. Obviously a climb as you're going to the top of where the gondola takes you.
