Amazing views, a bit muddy in winter even on a sunny day... however TOTALLY worth it!

Part of Te Araroa, this section is known as the Richmond Trail. Nice views over Lake Tekapo. Best tramped south to north to fully enjoy the views of the mountains.

The mountains during winter are just magnificent. The views are really rewarding. Every now and then your heart rate gets up there, but hey... I loved it and so did the dog. Victoria Dog Park is on the track as well . It’s perfect for a little run and play around for your four legged friend. Watch out for the mountain bikers who are having a blast up there too. Maybe don’t do this track after rainy days. It’s get quite muddy and slippery especially when you got the dog on the lead.

Great track, watch out for the sheep

amazing trail that has it all! pretty steep sections at times, but it's so worth it! can't recommend it enough.

Easy track with awesome views

amazing view and exciting to cross 3 swing bridges

Great views over the Waimak valley.

I have run up to the top of the Rapaki track several times. Good view looking from the top

Good track to run up but narrow and had to take care running up

Do you love stairs? Great views. Lots of stairs. Picnic table at the lookout. Last 200 steps were snow covered so a good walking stick will serve you well in June.

Great work out! Fantastic views. Would call this one hard considering that once you leave the Southface Track poles become sporadic and the terrain is for some distance exposed steep, loose rock / scree. I feel it's best done from Sharplin Falls on the Staverley side. Be prepared for changing weather. May need crampons and ice axes in winter. In summer take sufficient water. Sun orchids along the track over Hooked Knob at the right time of the year.

Amazing views

This is a fun trail. Three suspension bridges, two lakes, a dozen waterfalls, and sideways rain.

Absolutely beautiful.

Well maintained track with LOADS of stairs! We hopped over the fence at the end to see the base of the falls. A good cardio workout and super pretty.

Challenging with a 360’ reward

Great flat trail , views are stunning. Lots of people, but with views like this it's easy to see why. Most people are friendly and polite. 3 suspension bridges to cross both ways, bring a lunch and water. Good for all levels!
