This track can be walked as well as mountain biked.
If you are walking it is worth organising a shuttle or organise a pick-up at the other end. The narrow but well defined Moonlight Track starts at Arthurs Point and eventually follows the historic route into the Moonlight goldfields and the old goldmining settlement of Sefferstown. The track then continues down to Moke Lake where there is a DoC campsite. There are a few changes you can make with this walk; for a bit of added excitement you can also catch the gondola up and walk to the Ben Lomond Saddle, from here you can drop down and walk to either Arthurs Point or to Moke Lake.
If you are mountain biking you can either ride the whole loop from Queenstown up to Arthurs Point, following the Moonlight Track then back to Queenstown via Moke Lake. Or you can organise a shuttle to drop you off/pick you up.
You need to be an intermediate rider with reasonable skill and fitness. About 90% of the track is rideable, a few rugged sections on the Arthurs Point half of the ride.

Very nice track, many different sceneries.
Very nice track with good mountain views, poorly indicated (locals use track too).
Cycling difficult but very beautiful
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
