There are some great trails around Picton for mountain biking including The Link Pathway and further afield, the Queen Charlotte Track. 

Some local tracks are suitable for less experienced bikers while others are recommended for those with a reasonable amount of technical experience. Whichever track you tackle, rest assured a fantastic biking adventure awaits! Here at Wilderness Guides, we can help plan a bike experience for you that fits your ability and timeframe. We always recommend you take your time though - to enjoy the fantastic views along the way.

If you don't have long to spend in town, consider hiring a mountain bike to explore the new Link Pathway. This purpose-built trail, for walkers and bikers, offers stunning views to rival it's more well-known neighbour, the Queen Charlotte Track. It's great for a half-day or day ride that you can access directly from Picton.

As a Great Ride, the Queen Charlotte Track falls under the jurisdiction of the New Zealand Cycle Trail/Nga Haerenga and NZCT is clear in its policy around e-bike use on the Great Rides.  

Queen Charlotte Track is graded as an ‘easier tramping track’ for walkers and 62% intermediate/grade 3, 28% advanced/grade 4 and 10% expert/grade 5 for mountain biking.
NZCT Mountain Bike Trade Grades are as follows: 
Intermediate/Grade 3: Off-road trails can be narrow and may include hills, steep drop-offs, and small river crossings. Trail surfaces are mainly firm but may include muddy or loose sections, and obstacles such as rocks or tree roots.
Advanced/Grade 4: Off-road trails are narrow with steep climbs and unavoidable obstacles. The trail surface includes firm and loose sections, with lots of rocks and tree roots. There is likely to be mud and poor traction in places, and some walking required. E-bikes are not permitted on grade 4 off-road trails.
Expert/Grade 5: Off-road trails are likely to be challenging with long, steep climbs, precipitous descents, and dangerous drop-offs as well as rocks, roots, ruts, and potentially hazardous river crossings. E-bikes are not permitted on grade 5 off-road trails.

Grade 5 Sections of the QCT are from Kenepuru Saddle to Bay of Many Coves Shelter and the climb out of Torea Saddle.
