High Point

Big pedal loop (you can cheat and shuttle CP road) taking in all the Coronet classics as of 2021. Coronet DH, Rude Rock, Pack Track and Sack, Skippers pack Track, Zoot and Hot Rod.
No shade on this ride but a few creeks along the way to fill your water, more so on the Skippers side.
Lots of climbing but nothing too steep.

Few different ways to do this too, XC instead of DH for an easier descent, also full skippers instead of PTS or down Rude Rock all the way and up Tradesmans back to PTS.

Summer route only

Fantastic continuation of Rude Rock giving you a really long almost non-stop descent. As Donald Duck says I would class it as a Grade 4 (but I live and ride in Nelson, where the whole thing would barely be a 4, let alone a 5).
If you can ride Rude Rock, you can ride this, just be prepared for a decent pedal back out and to take a couple of bits slowly if Grade 4 is your normal max.

Trail Rude Rock
Great trail, very fun/fast/flowy with a little chunk here and there. Only 'hard' feature is clearly labelled with a ride around.

Trail Coronet XC
Climbing is pretty steep in places. Had to push a couple sections. I did start at the very bottom of the O’Connell climb so I was exhausted towards the top. On the downhill there are a couple tight grade 4 corners. Sick track overall

Check the road closure sign at the intersection of Skippers Road and Coronet Peak Rd before riding any descents that use this climb to return. Road was closed due to slip today.

Too wet to ride without damaging the trail. Wait for more sun

This track is sick. New school dh track with premium dirt. Takes a few laps to know where to send it.

Trail Coronet XC
A must do trail in Queenstown, epic fun, flowing descent, breathtaking views, add Rude Rock or Corotown to the end and you've just ticked off one of the best Queenstown trails.
