Length: 6.7 mi • Est. 3 h 55 m
Amazing hike to get a nice view of the glacier. 4 suspended bridges and tons of waterfalls. Can get quite slippery. The trail takes a long time because it is mainly slippery rocks, so take care. https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/west-coast/places/westland-tai-poutini-national-park/things-to-do/tracks/roberts-point-track/Show more
