Help the Trust build and maintain tracks.

The Trust is a registered Charity and is supported by a grant from Queenstown Lakes District Council.

To create new tracks the Trust relies on funding from other Charitable Trusts, private donations and support from local businesses.

Your donation to the Trust enables us to take this incredible community asset from good to great, giving enjoyment and health benefits to those who use it. Be part of something amazing, and donate to be part of the track and trail networks in the Upper Clutha.

If you would like to support the Trust in its mission to create a world class network of walking and cycling tracks in the Upper Clutha Basin, we would welcome either cash donations or donations of skills and services.
