It is highly recommendable to take the east track to Rocky Mountain on the way up and the west track on the way down. Wear waterproof hiking boots because in places it’s super muddy and wet. All in all, the hike is beautiful and not heavily traveled if you choose to go up to Rocky Mountain.Show more

Nice loop trail around Moke Lake. The views of the lake and the surrounding mountains are spectacular. It’s a short 15 minute drive from Queenstown, dont miss it! https://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/listing/moke-lake-loop-track/2043/Show more
