    You will be collected from Queenstown at 7am and be transported to the settlement of Garston (traveling south along Lake Wakatipu) and up to the start of the trail (Historic Ski Hut Nevis Road, Garston). You will then embark on your journey along the hand built, single track trail. Arriving back in Queenstown at approximately 7pm.
