Photos of National Parks in Canterbury Region

THE GOOD:
Wow! The views along the trail are incredible from start to finish. You wind through azure alpine streams and glacier lakes while walking through Hooker Valley. The towering snow capped mountains are nothing short of magnificent. Walk a little past the trail end to get an up close view of the floating icecaps. Would disagree with the moderate rating - tail is about as easy as they come. Hardly any elevation change, wide, and well marked. Great for all ages and experience levels.

THE BAD:
This place is crawling with oblivious tour bus tourists whose only concern is taking an Instagram selfie and not enjoying the views around them.
