Located in rural New Zealand at the start of Welcome Rock Trails; the best single track mountain bike trail in NZ and on a family owned working sheep and beef farm this really is a truly unique Southern setting.

Welcome Rock Trails is a grade 3 single track mountain bike/walking trail approximately 27kms long located in the high country above Garston near Queenstown. The trail incorporates Chinese and gold mining history and ecological content. Enjoy riding or walking Welcome Rock Trails by day and return to the Slate Hut at night, soak in the outside bath and enjoy the vast views.

A single track cross country mountain bike/hiking trail, hand built on one of NZ’s longest historic water races.

Back country huts have a long history in our country’s culture. The Mud Hut and Slate Hut are operated by Welcome Rock Trails and are located at different points along the trail.

Roaring Lion Trail: Like a Lion, the creek that fed the race roared with intensity. This trail celebrates the Chinese water race builders, who 110 years ago built the meandering bermed profile that follows the folds of the landscape. Today half the hand crafted trail is on this flat race with the remaining on gentle gradients.

As natural trail our design philosophy is to have a low impact on the landscape for visitors to interact and pass through. A story unfolds as you travel along, enriched with a tale about the gold mining era and ecology of the land.

A Welcome Rock experience can involve mountain biking, hiking or just relaxing at the huts.

Special conditions: Customers to bring their own sleeping bags, pillows and food. For more information look up Welcome Rock Trails online.
