Really nice and easy walk around an amazing lake with big views of great mountains. 8kms in about an hour and a half. Nice!

Beautiful hike with the trees blazing their autumn colours. Be sure to take in the 10 minute steep detour up German Hill and recline in the memorial bench that is located halfway up. I have done this hike twice now and counterclockwise was absolutely superior.

The effort to view ratio on this trail is super nice!! Amazing scenery for a 2 hour relatively easy hike.

I just loved the way up but the way down ( right red track showing here) it was not an actual track. I have to get in the bush and it was pretty hard. At some stage I actually though to go the hole way up again and back from where I start.

Lovely hike...even with 5yrs old! A bit of an adventure to cross the little streams of water! Great views from the top of the mountain

Very enjoyable loop from Arrowtown. A lot of picturesque locations from the creek in the gully - to wide open 360 degree views from a small summit including Lake Hayes.

Great easy track! We went on a rainy afternoon and it cleared up for a beautiful walk. I loved the views of the high side of track the best.

Easy Sunday morning walk, families and joggers love it too. Nice views, mirror lake for free, without all the tourists, in the morning. we enjoyed it a lot, especially after a long hike a day before.

What a great trail. Starts along the river out of Arrowtown and then breaks off left for a bit of a steep uphill. Some stream crossings and awesome scenery finishes with beautiful view from the top. Had it to ourselves for a nice lunch. Ate some wild strawberries and had a swim in the river on the way back to the car. Amazing day. Huge fans of the Arrowtown area.

It's a long walk but a good one. You walk by the lake, through wetlands, on a safe hill ledge overseeing the lake and mountains, and get to peek at the backsides of some nice homes. Put on sunscreen, bring water and enjoy. (I did this walk in padded flip-flops so don't need much in terms of gear.)

Great family walk, take a picnic and a paddle board :)
