About this track

Description

From the car park, the track descends through native bush with plenty of bird life to Bobs Cove. It has a stunning view over Lake Wakatipu and offers swimming and shore fishing.

A historic lime kiln remains from the 1800s, when the Wakatipu Lime Company quarried and processed Bobs Cove limestone. Gum trees here were planted to fuel the kilns.

This track connects to the Twelve Mile Delta Track.

Mountain biking

For mountain bikers the track is undulating with one steep climb. 

Getting there

The track starts at a car park on the Glenorchy–Queenstown Road, 14 km from Queenstown.
