Great walk. It was covered in snow and the track wasn't easily visible at the top.

Great view of the river , Alpine , glacier , birds.

Hiking with slightly snowfall is incredibly beautiful !
met 2 kea at the end of the track. perfect hiking.

Great hike - harder for the littlest kids but amazing views, a variety of micro-climates, well maintained trails, and a fantastic drive-in with beautiful farms and sheep. Bring a car/truck w enough clearance (0.5 m) to ford the streams en route to the parking area. Was a terrific 1/2 day hike

Awesome views from the top!

Amazing hike with breathtaking waterfalls! Do note that the road to the trail head floods in places, so if you don't have a car with good clearance than you'll be walking about and extra 1.5 miles to the head.

5 stars because you will see everything on that trek (huge waterfall, snow, alpine, ice, river, perfectly blue water...etc)

Great quick way to start your day!

awesome,beautiful scenery,well worth it!

Scenic and relaxing hike all the way! The drive here can be a bit of a pain with the gravel and small water crossings. Bring a picnic as the spot at the end is incredibly and you will want to hang out on one of the many rocks for a good while.

Good for a morning wakeup. Short semi strenuous loop.

Astonishing environment, one of the best walks of the South island. Leave early to avoid crowds and enjoy the silence. Not exposed, also good for families. Very easy. Shouldn't even say this but you must know that weather can change fast so it is always good to take extra clothes. Do not cross the river, seracs may fall down unpredictably especially late morning/afternoon.
