Features -none-

This section of the QCT is closed to bikers from December 1 to February 28 each year.

Description

If you're not going to Camp Bay, this is the most direct route to Kenepuru Saddle. Head right at the intersection to begin a gradual climb that continues to steepen the higher up you go. When you finally reach the ridgeline, it's an easy hike down to the saddle and the start of the Queen Charolette Track: Camp Bay to Torea Saddle.

The Queen Charlotte Track is a multi-use trail that travels over DOC and private land. The trail is typically completed over multiple days. To learn about access, accommodations, and useful information check out this brochure, here.
