Description

This is a charming section of trail with steady grades and awesome views as it climbs away from the town of Arthurs Point. As runners work up to what remains of the abandoned gold mining town of Sefferstown, you'll wind your way high above Moonlight Creek and the Shotover River on a narrow ribbon of singletrack carved into the side of Ben Lemond Peak.

Meanwhile Ben Lemond Peak towers above you and many other 3,000 - 5,000' peaks bristle in the distance. The cross slope is impressive at times and there are a few places with some exposure where a fall could have greater consequences (but these have the best views).

Part of the trail is on the privately owned Ben Lemond Station Farm. You can expect to find domestic animals (cattle and/or sheep) at times directly in the trail. Don't spook the animals, for their safety and yours. Do close any gates that you open behind you.
