Whether you're a beginner or an expert, we recommend your first run of the day be on Hammy's. Built specifically for the opening of Gondola access to Queenstown Bike Park as an introduction to downhill riding, Hammy's track is a great trail for all abilities. The gradient is mellow, it's wide and smooth and takes in some great views of Ben Lomond and Lake Wakatipu. It's also the longest trail in Queenstown Bike Park at 6km long

       Great introduction to the mtb park. Has some steep switchbacks. Really a blue trail.
