      Wherever you go in Queenstown, Mt Owen looms large at an impressive 1,146 m above sea level. On a clear day from the top, gaze towards Frenchman’s Cap, ponder the lost towns lying under Lake Burbury or look West across the Southern Ocean.

      Once heavily wooded, the area’s long industrial mining history and heavy timber felling left their mark. The mountain now lays bare its dramatic ridgelines and geology, making this trail network a unique and highly engaging riding experience.
      Book a shuttle to experience the Upper Mountain trails or get on your bike and pedal the unique landscapes of Little Owen to earn the views.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
