Fernhill Loop Details
A classic Queenstown trail chock full of gnarly roots that started life as a DOC (govt) track, was shunted by DOC to the QLDC (local council) who the ignored it for a couple of years and closed it. Now licensed to QMTBC who will upgrade, extend and maintain it. Huge climb in either direction but often ridden from bike park pushing DH bike up to the tree line and riding the roots down back into the bike park. Awesome views from the top if you continue past the treeline and fantastic backcounty feel just minutes from the town center.
Can be accessed from Wynyard Cres or from the midway clearing in the Queenstown Bike Park. Un-signposted since council 'closed' it so look sharp!
