Access to Dromedary Hill is through a public access easement through private farmland. The track is lightly marked along the valley floor, then climbs on a well formed track to Dromedary Hill (1664 m). On a fine day you can see Mt Barth to the north in Ahuriri Conservation Park.
Walkers on Dromedary Hill Track
This track is located on SH8, 23 km south of Omarama. There is a signposted car park near Dalrachney Road Bridge.
This trip makes a great half-day mountain bike ride. You may need to push your bike for a short stretch on rougher track near the summit but the effort is well worth it.
This is a shared-use track. Follow the mountain bikers code: respect others, respect the rules, respect the track.
Ride as far as you want on this trip. The track gets rocky and slightly rougher near Dromedary Hill summit.
