The Roaring Lion Trail at Welcome Rock is currently the first in what promises to be some of the best riding in the country. Set on private land this trail is a relatively easy 27km loop trail from the Historic Southland Ski Hut back to the same point. There is the option of riding a further 8km from the Historic Southland Ski Hut down the Nevis Road back to State Highway 6. This will depend on where you started your ride. It costs $40 to ride the trail and there are options for shuttles to and from Queenstown and overnight stays at some of the amazing back-country huts on the property.
