Queens Drive

  • 5 hr – 4 hr one way
  • Easy/medium

Queens Drive is an old goats track across the front side of the Remarkables. You can pick it out in summer as a grey scree slope and in winter a snow field which is pretty obvious.

The route is exposed and slippery due to loose gravel/scree. Year 13 students venture up there for Outdoor Pursuits classes - it isn't as scary as it looks from Queenstown.
