The Sawpit Gully track is a true local’s favourite that offers up stunning views, mountain creeks, beech forest and tussock covered hills all within an 8.5km loop. Located on Coronet Peak station, the trail was originally built as pack track that linked early settlers to the Big Hill Track and through to the Quartz Mining town of Macetown. The continuous change in scenery and terrain makes this course an exciting and challenging option for all levels of trail runners.
