10 Mount Crichton Track
This two-to-four-hour easy walk is a great way to experience a slice of the Queenstown region's scenery if you're pushed for time. The track traverses Mount Crichton Scenic Reserve (the trailhead is 10 kilometers out of Queenstown), through tall beech forests, up to Twelve Mile Creek Gorge, which was a major spot for prospectors during the Otago gold rush. Some of the ramshackle miner's cottages are still in place, so you can get a good idea of the harsh lifestyles of the intrepid prospectors. There are excellent views out to the mountain ranges beyond, and Lake Wakatipu below, from parts of the trail.
Location: Trailhead from Glenorchy Road, 10 kilometers from Queenstown
