Great views, waterfalls and local history combine to make this family-friendly hike a popular one in Queenstown.
A well-marked trail, there are plenty of viewpoints out over Lake Wakatipu, before the trail circles back to Twelve Mile Creek. Crossing the river, keep an eye out for a side trail to Sam Summers Hut - a gold prospectors hut built in the 1930s. There's plenty to investigate along this part of the trail, from the hut to waterfalls and an old gold mining tunnel (still safe to explore).
The trail then skirts Twelve Mile Creek as it winds its way back towards the car park.
Walking along a well-kept trail that’s mostly flat. No obstacles are present.
