From the Long Gully car park, a well-formed farm track on moderately steep hill terrain links tracks across the upper slopes and ridgeline of the Grandview Range. Options from a few hours to full or multi day are available providing extensive views across the upper Clutha Valley to the Southern Alps/kā Tiritiri o te Moana. The Grandview Ridge track ends at the Breast Hill Track Junction. For mountain bikers there is no exit / entry via Breast Hill or Timaru River tracks but there is an alternative route up the Grandview Mountain Track (9km one way).

This is the complete Grandview Ridge Track (previously known as Grandview Range Track).

  • Time: 4 – 6 hours one-way
  • Distance: 38.5 km one way (from Long Gully car park to Breast Hill Track Junction)  
  • Grade: Advanced tramping track. Some back-country (remote areas) experience required
  • MTB: Advanced track

Two sections of track are closed annually for lambing:
Deep Gully Track – 30 September – 4 November
