Ben Lomond Walkway, Queenstown, New Zealand
View Original Description
The hike begins at Douglas fir on Skyline Access Road/Tiki Trail. At about 800m altitude, you enter alpine tussocks and shrubs, climbing to the 1326m Ben Lomond Saddle (Ben Lomond Station). The trail gets steeper and rougher as it approaches Ben Lomond's 1,748m summit.
It takes 3-4 hours to Ben Lomond Saddle, 6-8 hours to Ben Lomond Summit
With great weather you can see views of Mounts Earnslaw/Pikirakatahi and Aspiring/Tititea.
From April to November, be prepared for snow and ice above the bushline.
Note: The section from the saddle to the summit crosses private land. Respect the landowner’s rights and keep to the formed track to avoid stock disturbance and farm hazards.
