Trail Information

7 Mile Bike Park

Renowned as one of the best bike parks in the South it is easy to see why 7 Mile is a favourite with locals and a personal favourite of ours.

There are heaps of loops and variations to be done that all circle back to the central hubs known as the The Hub, Eagles Nest and the Dream Arena. 

Ride berms, jumps, rock rolls, technical or wide open and fast. The great thing about these trails is that all jumps, hits and rocks can easily be side-stepped, rolled over or skirted on alternative lines. Meaning most trails can be equally enjoyed by the seasoned rider or the beginner rider. Manmade wooden structures like log rides, skinnies, bridges and banked wooden corners add a dose of spice for those adventurous advanced riders.

Most of the trails are one way so generally you are riding up the main access trail and down the single tracks, but there are a few options to keep the climbing interesting.

Equally as fun on a hard tail or full suspension trail bikes.

GETTING THERE:

7 Mile can be accessed either from 7 Mile Delta or Wilsons Bay (another two kilometres further on from Queenstown) both on the Glenorchy Road. The entrance from Wilsons Bay is much easier than the entrance from 7 Mile Delta, which has some steeper pitches and rocks and roots systems to contend with.

NEARBY RIDES:

If riding out to 7 Mile from Queenstown add in the Sunshine Bay or Arawata Terrace track instead of slogging it out on the road.

While in the neighbourhood don't miss the opportunity to ride one of Queenstown newest trails - Gold Digger. 

Starting opposite the 7 Mile Delta car par, Gold Digger was hand crafted by volunteers of the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club. The trail snakes up the hill parallel to the Moke Lake road and winds it way through the old gold mining relics of the area as you negotiate the tight forest and creek crossings - don’t worry, no wet feet on this one hand crafted bridges on all crossings.

An even gradient makes the climb manageable for people of all abilities and fitness levels. Once at the top a tight and technical descend awaits. Remember this is a dual direction trail so keep an eye out for approaching riders. No time to sit back on this one, the tight nature of the forest means that there is always something to do as you descend back down the valley.
