We rode the gondola up the hill and then followed the hiking path up from there. Some parts are quite steep but it is not too strenuous if you are in reasonable shape and wearing good shoes. Great views of Queenstown and the lake.

Worth a hike on a clear day some of the best views of Queenstown. Take water if hiking when it warm, worth a visit if you're in town.

At only about 45 minutes each way up and back, you better not make any excuses to not do this hike!! The trail path is quite spacious and easy to navigate, only thing is it is a lot of incline so get your legs ready. The views at the top are beyond amazing. Considering you only need 2-3 hours total,... More

It is nice hiking to top and a little steep, but it is worth the effort. It is definitely the best to view Queenstown.

Take a hike up here it doesn't take too long. The forest on the way up is captivating and you feel great when you make it up. Its also a walk in the shade the whole walk.

Great views at the top! The scenery across Queenstown and the lake was spectacular. If you're at least average fitness, you should be able to handle the track. Can't remember how long it took me, maybe 1 - 1.5 hours to get to the top. If you're not fit, keep in mind that some sections get a little steep, maybe... More

Walked up to the summit and found the views spectacular. Great first hike in the area. Know that it is quite steep, so bring a walking stick or poles.

There were signs the whole way up throughout the houses on the hillside leading the way to the start of the Queenstown Hill hike. We walked up, but there was some parking at the start of the hike. It took my friend and I about an hour and a half to complete the hike, and it was definitely challenging and... More
