Millbrook blazes new off-road trails


A 3km walking/cycling track through Millbrook Resort near Arrowtown was officially opened this month by (from left) Wakatipu Trails Trust chairman Terry Stevens, resort property development boss Ben O’Malley and former Trails Trust chairman, Arrowtown councillor John Wilson.

The track, which runs alongside The Avenue, Mill Stream and four holes of the new Coronet Nine golf course, connects a new trail down to Speargrass Flat Road and along Rutherford Rd to the Lake Hayes loop track, opening up a 16km round trip.

The Millbrook link means 70 per cent of the 21km Arrowtown-Queenstown journey can now be completed off-road.

Millbrook is separately vesting its 3.14km “Arrowtown Corner” land to Queenstown Lakes District Council for recreational use.
