Beautiful track at intermediate level - no part is heavily challenging. At the moment, the track has been rerouted at the start due to washouts, but no biggie and clearly signposted. We did the first few creek crossings in jandals before switching to boots. The whole track was fun and adventurous, so should be fun with children that have some experience, too! At a hearty pace, we made it up in 05h45min and down in 05h15min, including generous breaks for foods, pictures, and change of shoes. If it takes longer than expected to Architect Creek, no worries - it is NOT the halfway point, but more like 2/3! Hit the pools after sunset to avoid sandflies and - pro tip - take a bottle of water into the pool so you can have a warm shower afterwards.

Nice and easy walk by a river showcasing a beautiful coastal rainforest and amazing limestone formations. HIGHLY recommended! Good for kids, running - anything really.

Did the Copland track with my girlfriend Cecylia. Both the trail and her are amazing. I love her (the trail). 5.5 hours on the way there and 6 back. Doable in 5 with no breaks and a faster pace. Hot springs are amazing

Hard track which requires to actually climb sometimes but great reward with views on Fox glacier, Mt Cook, Mt Abel. Brilliant hike but long and challenging. You need to be quite fit and used to do long hike too.

This trail was incredible! We went in July 28 and came out July 29. We did get rain overnight and the deepest river crossing (the first one you can see from the parking lot) was ankle-high going in and mid-shin coming out. The trail is beautiful and easy to follow. We saw a Tahr near the Welcome Hut. The hot pools have an amazing view! Five star trail without a doubt!

Impressive vistas, lush moss covering rocks and trees, water falls, streams, rivers and best of all natural hot pools at your destination. An easy going, hyper scenic trail, in my opinion, and one if the best I've walked in the SI, given all you see and get. It's marked as 'hard' but id disagree. It's very consistent and actually rather manicured. The heavy traffic it gets could be why it's so well formed. Even after a week of rain it was firm and dry. The time given is 7 hours for the 20km, but we did it in 5.5 at a pretty mild pace, a very generous lunch stop and much faffing. The bulk of the trail is under forest so will be cold in winter months, have layers at the ready. There are a lot of rivers and streams feeding into the main Copland river, so many bridges to cross along the way. We did the walk after a week of solid westcoast rain and still only had to make 2 'get your legs wet' river crossings. The first is actually at the very beginning in eye shot of the car park. We all strolled through in bare feet and booted up on the other side - handy tip maybe. The Welcome flats hut is pretty good, tidy and spacious. Classic bed mats in the dorms, drinkable water at the taps, generous kitchen space and flushing toilets with toilet paper! A huge attraction is the natural hot pools. They are really incredible, perfect temp with views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Make sure to pop in at night for a perfect view of the milky way, star gazing from hot pools was my highlight, can't beat that.

This hike was an all out scramble to the summit. It is definitely a hard hike using your whole body to climb up roots. There is a glacier river (drinkable) about 30-45mins out which came as a blessing on our hike back down on the mountain as we ran out of water on the hike back down. Bring plenty of water and good hiking shoes. Be prepared for lots of deep muddy spots towards the summit. We were able to see Fox Glacier briefly before large cloud coverage overtook the summit. It took our group 7.5hrs out and back. Absolutely worth it and such a fun hike.

Great track. A few steep bits. Great day trip

Hard! But then again we were first timers with 4 kids! Lucky we had a seasoned tramper with us. Great hut, hot pool totally worth it. The sign says 7km from the carpark.....

Very steep but extremely fun! Get ready to pull yourself up roots and rocks the whole way. A review I read called it "human 4 wheel drive" which I'd agree with. We went on a somewhat cloudy day and managed to see Fox Glacier peek through the clouds after waiting at the summit for a while. Start early and hope for no clouds! There was water in tarns at the top, but be prepared to treat it.

A really good hike but definitely on the difficult side - some rock scrambles and very uneven clambers! Worth it though with beautiful views all the way up, amazing woodlands and creeks / bridges to keep things interesting. Took us 7 and a half hours up and 6 hours down (with breaks for lunch etc). Some very high wire bridges so not a walk for someone scared of heights. Really enjoyed it but pretty tired after!

I felt like this track was hard going but worth it. the views around are amazing. I slept in the hut over night. dont forget your swim wear and a towel as there are natural hot pools out the back which are totally worth a quick dip or s long soak depending how you're feeling.

It’s extreme steep! Take care, high fitness level only. But the walk was so much fun, we took 5.5 hours to complete. Maybe take desinfection or cloves with you, you need all 4 hands and feet; sometimes there is snow at the top. It could be muddy instead if you go after a rainy night.

This was not a hard track. There are historical sites in teh form of the old gold mining equipment. The track is well defined and easy to follow. Near the Knob are two huts for paid over night stays. Currently The track is closed until 1DEC when a new track will be opened crossing over the Croesus Track. I did not continue down the west side to Barrytown.

The sign say 8 hours. The woman at DOC office say 6 h, we made it 4,5 h. It's more like a climb then a hike. I thought it was really funny and you get a good wiev about the mountain and ocean. Would do this one again. It's really hard hike, but fun

I would not classify this as a moderate hike! It was a very difficult hike that was very steep. It was a climb requiring all four limbs much of the time. We were given some bad advice from the DOC i-site, the guide said this was a good backpacking trail for an overnight stay. The 3 hours we were able to complete were grueling and we had another 1,000 ft to go to make it to the summit. There were no good places to set up a tent as far as the eye could see. There were, however, many beautiful views from the 1020m indicator. All night long we could hear the rushing Fox River down below. This was a demanding, yet satisfying trail. It takes the full 8 hours to complete. Believe the sign!
