Amazing views. Would recommend doing the loop clockwise for the views and an easy descent as the return. Definitely broke a sweat on the way up. The cafe has delicious and affordable food options, it’s a good pit stop for food/water/toliets.

Amazing hike with picturesque views of the turquoise blue lake. Would recommend going clockwise to get the best view. Definitely do the entire loop and don’t just turn around at the cafe.

Decent for a short walk, nothing spectacular

brilliant stroll

had a spare 3 hours weather great awesome walk

Awesome panoramic view of Lake Tekapo and the surrounding area. Well maintained and diverse plant life along the way. Steep and it was super windy for us at the top!

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.

I'm not sure why this is rated as easy... it's quite steep but the views are worth it.

great walk. nice view. start by the lake shore !
