For outdoor enthusiasts who'd rather keep their feet firmly planted on the ground instead of soaring above Lake Wakatipu or plummeting toward the Nevis River, Queenstown offers Ben Lomond Track. This scenic walking and hiking trail starts at the western end of Skyline Access Road – about a mile southwest of central Queenstown – and ends at the nearly 2,000-foot high Ben Lomond Summit.
Past explorers cautioned that this hiking trail is best reserved for healthy, active travelers since the path is steep. Keep in mind: In the winter, Ben Lomond Track will have plenty of snow to traverse, so dress accordingly.
