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 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.
This track is located on SH8, 23 km south of Omarama. There is a signposted car park near Dalrachney Road Bridge.
Ride as far as you want on this trip. The track gets rocky and slightly rougher near Dromedary Hill summit.
