I did plenty of hikes while in New Zealand all over the south and north island and this was easily the best hike I did there and definitely a favorite. It's also the hardest hike I've ever done. Challenging and steep all the way up. But this hike does not disappoint. Amazing view and worth the hike to the top!!! Starts at the Sealy Tarns trail which is only steep stairs all the way up. From the top of Sealy Tarns you continue up towards Mueller Hut where it becomes unpaved and more like rock climbing. There was still snow towards the top which made it a bit slippery but was still able to get a good grip in the snow. Dress in layers as it can be cold and windy at the top.

Fun hike with some rocky/exhausting bits, the view from the summit however is definetly worth it. Also more fun going up than down as Gebbies pass is at times less enjoyable due to the logging that has and is still taking place. Apart from this it's definitely worth the time & effort.

Nice trail with good viewpoints! However part of the forest has been cleared, which deminishes the atmosphere and view partly. Would still recommend it!

Nice hike! Steep to begin with. Becomes quite exposed to the wind for a section about half way up but take it slow and increase the width between your steps and you’ll be right! Beautiful 360 degree views at the summit! Enjoy homies!

Great walk, stunning scenery! The track is in pretty good condition, although the Red Beech loop is a but ropey in places. There's some loose gravel in a couple of patches, but I wouldn't call it scree...

what an absolute delightful hike, spoilt with views all the way up and to be rewarded with panoramic views at the summit well marked track and moderately busy

Total burner of a hike. Straight up. Probably a top-2 hardest hike I’ve done. Last 1/2 mile was almost entirely snow and continued to be steep. The view over the ridge was fantastic. Worth it if you can do it

Great hike with great views. I started with Mount Fyffe along the 4WD road. Not that spectacular, but awesome when the first view point appears. Mount Fyffe Summit offers amazing views in all directions! I extended Mount Fyffe Summit hike with this Kowhai-Hapuku loop: Mount Fyffe Car Park - Kowhai Saddle - Kowhai Hut - Mount Fyffe Car Park. It’s definitely an advanced hiking option, usually a multi-day hike with sleeping in a hut. I did that in one day! On Christmas Eve 2019. Crazy, but amazing. An adventure, hiking the ridges, the Kowhai Saddle and the crazy descent to the Kowhai Valley. It took me 10 hours total time for 27km. Don’t do the loop after heavy rain. You must cross the water several times! Always follow the orange marks from DOC. It might differ from the map in AllTrails. Pay attention and be careful!

- 40min to Sealy - 90min from Sealy to Mueller Hut - 10min break at Mueller Hut (there's water, sleeping mats, warmth, gas ovens) - 90min Mueller Hut to bottom - Total time: 3hrs 40min - Basically all stairs until Sealy (pretty monotonous and grueling unfortunately), then rough terrain (rocks), then full on snow (6 inches - 2 ft deep). I managed to climb with trail running shoes and was relatively comfortable on the way up. Way down was super slippery, snow was turning into slush, harder to keep footing, and feet were soaked. I still loved it but it was a trudge. :) - Beautiful views all the way. Incredible views even if you only make it to Sealy. - Started at 8:30am and trail was relatively free (and plenty of parking) on way up. On way down it was definitely busy and the parking lot was incredibly full when we got back to car. - Sunscreen is a must. I was plenty warm with spandex, wool layer, and lighter jacket. Epic climb!

1 hr up to Sealy Tarns. 2 hrs up to the hut. An extra 30 mins to get to the viewpoint behind. Set off early so snow covered parts of the trail were fine without crampons. On the way down the snow was very slushy, looked more difficult to ascend up the steep parts.

A tough hike but the views are totally worth it! I found the first half up to Sealy Tarns physically harder than the last half, so don't be discouraged. Completed this track in November and there was a bit of snow at the top. The snow was sticky so crampons (you can rent some in the village) were more of a nice to have. They make going down the snow a lot safer and easier. There was also drinking water at the hut when I was there.
