Great hike. Steep in places but worth it for the view at the top. Recommend walking the west to east option.

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

Lovely track, great views, interesting limestone formations. The side track (not sign posted) to a rocky outcrop is a must! Unfortunately mostly in shade in winter.

Magnificent. Beautiful rain forest, bridge crossings, waterfalls. Unfortunately snow closed the pass the night before so we couldn't complete the full track but we hope to come back and finish it off next year.

Great views. Fair bit of exposure after Harris Saddle. Faced unusually heavy rain fall, hail and snow while camping in mid April 2018. Otherwise enjoyable.

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.

Awesome views from the top. Took just under an hour for me to reach the summit. Definitely worth checking out !

Pretty easy with stunning views!

Lovely views & nice trail! Saw some sheep :)

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

Absolutely love the Routeburn... I’ve done it twice with my two daughters (11 & 13) so many highlights.

Most amazing hike I've ever done. The views are spectacular but be prepared for LOTS of rain and very technical/rough terrain. This is definitely not a hike for beginners and day 2 is rough. That being said, it's the most amazing trek I've ever done in my life and I can't wait to do another Great Walk in New Zealand.

nice hike along the lake just outside Queenstown. GPS is inaccurate and you need to keep going until you see the Bob's Cove Recreation Area sign. there are a couple of steeper spots on this hike but very manageable.

I was fortunate to hike this trail on a semester abroad to NZ. Amazing trail, some of the best views I’ve ever had.

Awesome views from the top!

Excellent views of lake wanaka! Moderate hike but challenging enough!

A very nice easy hike through a pretty forest to this serene and beautiful alpine lake. Do not expect any views until you get to the lake :). Walking by the roaring waters of The Gantry is impressive, but it’s not a water fall as some descriptions suggest. Enjoy!

A fantastic, but challenging one day 25km hike from Routeburn to Harris Saddle and back. Conical Hill is a must, the views were incredible. Even got to see Milford Sound.

Really recommend that walk. Go to the summit, the view is way better from there and these are only around 15min more.
You will find your way to the top but there aren’t a lot of signs.

This is a good hike from the dock. It is a steep out and back. Wondrous views from the top. Go to the top summit, not just the metal cauldron. it took us, average hikers about 80 mins to the summit and an hour back to the docks.

good hike with nice view on the wanaka lake. could be dangerous at some place (very narrow)

Enjoyed the rock scramble on the west side of the loop. Super duper windy at the top. Did not expect that. Lots of people.
