“Convenient to Qtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

Gave us exercise and time in the hills and trees, not far from Queenstown. A quick hike to do and a nice drive along the water's edge.

“Beautiful Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

I love this trail. We've done it 10 times. It's so quiet. The birds sing their beautiful melodies as you hike through a beautiful forest meandering along a roaring river. You encounter some history along the way not to mention some gorgeous views. Have fun.

“Great 2 hour walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

We loved this walk, particularly the up section. We did it clockwise which I'd recommend as you climb up and up and then emerge after an hour and a bit at thew most beautiful view of the lake. From there its half an hour all downhill and not as interesting. But on the way up you also see lots of mining history including a hut where someone lived which is cool. there is a bathroom after 45 mins at the hut.

“Beautiful track with mountain, lake and stream views."”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

This is a fairly easy track with an easy incline. It took us 2.5 hours to complete the track with a slight 1/2 hour diversion off track. The fern & pine forest trail takes you on a path that crosses some breath taking views of snow capped mountains, waterfalls and the lake.
