HikingGreat!

went for sunrise after staying overnight at the hut in winter. had an amazing sunrise right infront of the lighthouse, highly recommended. took an hour from the hut.. can be pretty windy while waiting for the sunrise.

Beautiful coastal track with plenty of beautiful bays! Not hard walk either.

Pretty easy though copped it from my family for not telling them it was uphill

We did this track on 2/7 and while there was some snow in shady spots it was very well marked and doable. We went to the rest hut provided by the ski club to get a break from the wind which would have been even more intense had we continued to Lake Angelus, you DEFINITELY need a full face balaclava for the winds. Took us about 1 hour to get up with stops for photos and about 1h30m down. Went up Pinchgut and down Paddys but unless you're keen on not walking the same track twice I'd just take Pinchgut back down. I think Paddys was just as steep/hard on the knees and the last 30m to the carpark were undulating, and the views of the lake were similar on both tracks.

Amazing views of the sea. The trail follows the coast line. In and out of mixed Bush with fern trees. We stayed in the huts on the way.

I had the chance to do this track on a beautiful day. Was end of June and still no snow for now. Just some puddles here and there. But if they're is I would advice anyone to take all the gears for ice. Would be dangerous is there is snow. Beautiful view, lots of lakes on the way. Beautiful track, loved it.

Belle randonnée, vue sur le lac et les montagnes. on est passé par Pinchgut puis Paddys qui descend sur le lac. Finie environ en 3h15 sans pause sans se presser. Sentier tracé et en bon état. Il faut être en forme pour la montée difficile au début mais ça vaut le coup une fois en haut ! Facile pour les personnes avec un bon cardio

Der Weg ist eher ein Spaziergang, ohne wirkliche Steigungen. Sind in weniger als zwei Stunden von St. Arnaud bis zur Lakehead Hut gegangen. Tolle, gut ausgestattete Hütte. Der Weg selber war selbst nach starkem Regen noch gut begehbar. An zwei Stellen muss man einen kleinen Fluss überqueren.

Haben den Weg in 5 Stunden abgeschlossen (wir = zwei 19-jährige Mädchen). Wunderschöner Weg, wenn man nur einen Tag im Abel Tasman hat! Die 25km sind definitiv machbar, da der Weg keine extremen Steigungen hat, sondern immer auf und ab geht. Der Anstieg zu Gibs Hill ist ein bischen Mühsam, und der Ausblick von dort ist auch nicht spektakulär. Der restliche Weg ist aber unglaublich schön.

Good hike. Went up Punchgut and down Paddy’s like people recommended. Weather was amazing for late May. Punchgut is steep but gives you a good view of the lake on the switchbacks. After walking around the peak, Paddy’s gives you constant views of the lake with a consistent gradual decline. Finished in 2.5 hours with a 15 minute break for lunch.

Nice hike, we went up in May so definitely colder and more of an overcast day but still bright with great views. Up Pinchgut and down Paddy’s so you have the view all the way down. We weren’t sure on timings as so many people vary based on reviews but we took 4 hours 10 mins overall, which includes a stop for 50 mins at a hut midway to have lunch. We also had lots of breaks to take photos and would say we’re an average / good level of fitness. It gets very cold at the top and I would say the best views are coming down Paddy’s.

Pitthead Walk. It was a nice trail, a little over an hour, and had several nice viewpoints from up high.

fun walk but definitely not easy, I did it in high tide and some parts of the walk along the beach you need to climb on rocks so bring good shoes. it's better on low tide

all the walk is in the forest, we went in May and it was a bit cold. the walk was easy in the beginning but the last 30 min it's on and between rocks. in the end you can see part of the hole which was really big and impressive but you don't really see all of it. (there is a ring to tie up rope for climbers but you need a special long rope). 20 min before the end there is an option to go up 10 min to George look out, you can see up there the Golden Bay valley but there isn't a place to sit, it's all rocky. I went with a 70 years old friend and the climb to George look out took as 20 min. and we did all the walk in 3 hours. it was a bit hard. the road to the track is pretty bad and long. there is no reception there. I will do this track only if I'm done with all the other amazing track around this area.

2018 Kayaked to Anchorage then hiked back. Incredible sea, paddled to see fur seals, lots of birds. Hike back was as good as kayaking.

Stunning location - endless hills and lakes on one side, rugged mountains on the other. Sign says longer but should take roughly 4-5 hours . I walked further South along the ridge to Julius Summit. Would love to go back in the winter with crampons and an ice axe.

We ve only done the coast track from Totaranui to Separation Point. Nice track where we alternated beetween Forest track and beaches. Separation point is a really nice spot, if you walk on the rocks there, you ll be able see many fur seals.

Assez moyenne comme randonnée. Très facile et beaucoup de monde. Trop touristique à notre goût. Le petit plus est la diversité des oiseaux.
