As the name suggests, it was one of the first trails ever built in Queenstown Bike Park. It follows the path of gold miners from the late 1800's and now serves a different purpose as a great bike trail. It starts off straight and fast and then hits a few loose corners before hitting some roller-coaster berms. It then heads out of the pine forest into the open overlooking some amazing views of Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables and Cecil Peak. It ends with some tabletop jumps and a steep chute before joining Hammy's and the Return trail to the Gondola.
