Fernhill Track

Tuesday afternoon in Queenstown, Swedberg and I hiked six miles on the Fernhill Track above Queenstown. Using data from my Garmin 305, I generated the following views of the hike in Google Earth and an elevation graph from Garmin Training Center software. I also included a couple of pictures that I took along the way. I embedded the KMZ file in Google Maps at the bottom of the posting.

Starting from the top of the Skyline Gondola at 2,600 feet, we dropped down to 1,800 feet to pick up the Fernhill Track. From there, we climbed up to the snow line at just over 3,000 feet before dropping back to Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. The mountain range on the far side of the lake in the pictures is called the Incredibles.
