Easy singletrack from the Kelvin Heights golf course to Jacks point although there is a narrow tricky section between the end of the golf course to Jardine park but it can be avoided by a short road section if required. The section from Jardine Park to Jack's Point is a narrow winding gravel trail with a drop on one side to the lake. This trail is popular with walkers and runners so please be considerate and slow down for blind corners. Once you get to the signposted turnoff to Jack's Point golf course you can optionally continue on the less well use grassy singletrack which gets slightly more technical and has a steep climb to the highest point of Jack's Point. Beer and food available at the Jack's Point clubhouse.

Access Info

Can start from either Jack's Point or Kelvin Heights golf courses or you can link it up via the Queenstown Trail from the Town Center, Arrowtown or Gibbston.
