Easy trek with an amazing view on the hooker lake and the mount cook

Awesome hike up the hill. The rocks make sure you’re paying attention. Solid views.

Lots of fun. Had a great view of lyttleton and Christchurch. Well worth the trek.

Recommend starting counterclockwise as the footing is better for the down hill portion. Hiking poles a good idea also.

Pleasant 4 mile return hike to foot of Glacier. Beautiful view on the way and at the point itself. Easy trail with moderate climb on way out and quick return. If you only have a day or two here it’s perfect scenic trail.

Great in the dry, a tendency to be slippery after rainfall in Forrest sections. Great fun.

Short well maintained walk to a nice summit with picnic area. Loop is not well signposted. Good family stroll
