If you make to the village, you should go and have a look at the view offered by this short walk. It is not bad walk ant can be done in less than the advertised 1/2 each way

This is a short walk that can be done within an hour or two. Great for an evening walk before or after your meal.

This is an easy 1 hour return journey from the Hooker Valley car park and camping ground. It can be done as a longer 2 hour walk from the village, but the first half is along a fairly boring flat track so it's best to skip this if you have transport.
The walk leads leads along a fairly well maintained track, with some steps to a lookout over the Mueller Lake. This offers good views of the lake and its massive grey glacier moraine wall, with Mt Cook looming over the top.
The Hooker Valley walk offers superior views, but for those looking for a short walk on a rushed schedule, or not up to a half day hike, The Kea Point Walk is well worth the effort.

I absolutely loved this walk. The walk from the Hermitage is about 1 hour (return, if I remember correctly). The views heading up to Kea Point were so amazing. If you are after a short walk with high yield in scenery, this is the walk for you.

The walk way is well boarded and making it very pleasant to trek. It will be great if the walkway is extended out further so that we can see better into the glacier. Along the way, there were a big patch of wild flowers. Making it great for some photo shot. Overall, this trek is also suitable for young and old.
