This is how Pack Track and Sack is described in the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club's guide... "Starts tight and technical then opens up into flowing singletrack down an historic stock route which joins into Skippers Pack Track."

It's a down slope trail with swinging switchbacks - one that leaves you smiling but it's very short - just 1.5 kilometres. It links the amazing Rude Rock trail to the less inspiring Skippers Pack Track. You would only ride it if you had a shuttle waiting on Skippers Road or if you were going to carry on to Skippers, the ghost town that's 15 km up a gravel road above the Shotover River.

    It a nice but short ride, similar to the Rude Rock trail that it branches off from but without the magic... There is good variety for such a short ride.
