Surprisingly steep, but good view from the top! Great if you need a 2-3 hour semi rigorous hike. Lots of shade, you aren’t exposed to the sun.

Views can’t be beat. One of the best hikes out there - don’t miss it.

Excellent hike. The weather held and I had nothing but sunshine compared to the people who had sleet and rain the previous day. The track is very easy to follow and stay on. This could be done in the evening with a headlamp as well. Guardian of the citadel indeed.

A great trail! That begin with a lot of stairs. Be aware. Then a point of view on your right. And then a lovely up to have the beautiful view of the amount Cook. And the finish at the hut. Definitely worth it and quite hard. 2,5 hours up. 1,5h down

Hard but rewarding. Rain and mist and cloud and sun greeted us on this trail. Recommend hiking boots for this one.

Trail sign says Private, permit and $40 payment required with phone number that no one answers and website with limited info. Skipped it. Not enough info to try to drive our vehicle back there

What better place to hike in a rainy day than in a rain forest?!? We couldn’t-get to the long fall, as it was too sloppy, but enjoyed the hike.

Absolutely loved this hike!! Have always dreamt of doing this and loved every minute of it. What an experience. Hard when it rains heavily and your walking all day in wet boots but soooo worth it. Truly a great walk!!!!

Excellent trail running loop

Wed Feb 13 2019

Excellent trail until the loop, existing track is degraded on edges and is next to a cliff. Wear long pants and boots and just walk straight to the beacon through the grass to the right.

Very beautiful walk deep in the bush. Would definitely do it again.

Nice walk with several up and down sections with fantastic views of blue/green water. Perfect for a picnic!

Don't take this lightly. After an easy walk to the cascade it changes dramatically. Was wet when we did it and was a lot of mud and slippery roots. zLakr was mystical with the clouds giving way to glorilus views then closing in again

Favorite great walj in New Zealand. We went from divide to Routeburn Shelter. From Lake Mackenzie to Routeburn Falls was absolutely stunning. Fantastic views all day long. Took in both the Key Summit and the Conical both worth the effort. Last day out to Routeburn Flats was fairly easy but less scenic

Wed Feb 13 2019

A bit less impresdive than the Routeburn. I you enjoy walking through rainforests this is for you. One fairly fairly flat day aling a river then a long climb up and down from Macinnon pass then a flat day out. Waterfalls are stunning
