Trail was extremely steep with lots of rocks. Had to pull yourself up using tree roots at times. The sign-post warns that this is an advanced route. All-trails lists this as moderate - definitely not "moderate".

Fantastic trail! We were lucky to find a dusting of snow at the top. Not an easy walk - lots of climbing - but active kids 8+ years old should be fine. My boys loved it. Great views too!

Part of the trail closed but still a really decent walk, ended up going up to the campground and then turning back.

Brutal, that’s the word. Especially if you go further than the mount fox signalisation. Do it when no rain day before and on a very clear day. Very challenging also the first part on the forest, sometimes you have to climb with hands and it can slip, careful on the going down. But the view is very impressive. Bring lot of water and food

Track is closed because of a flooding. Went there on 30th may 2020. The sign didn't mention when the Track would be reopened.

awesome! we did it the other way around (clockwise) and we think this way is better, so we saved the best views for day 3 and had the more flat parts through the forest in the beginning. we had the best possible weather but it can get muddy. luxmore hut was pretty crowded. luxmore peak and the luxmore caves are pretty awesome too!

Absolutely stunning short walk/hike. Steep little track but well worth the effort. Borland Road is a attraction in itself. One of our Favorite days in Fiordland. Wow, what a spot!

Great trail - started at dawn to get the best of it.... got surprisingly busy later... lots of people including families and kids passed us on the way back. Also stunning lighting earlier in the day and so peaceful. Was 1c starting an 10c coming back (late May) would be even nicer in spring when streams are flowing.

Worth the drive up there, a stunning day makes a difference. Cold, but warming sun, no wind. 1st half routine up ski field vehicle tracks, second half au natural, needing sure footing at times in a peaceful alpine environment. Lake frozen over, serene and away from the troubles of the planet.

Great walk

Great walk. Very sheltered. Lovely Bush with couple of nice views. Paths well maintained. Closer to 10km measured by Fitbit. Elevation gained approx 285m

This was a great hike with stunning views... challenging at times but mostly a steady climb. Definitely worth the extra effort to climb the hill above the hut ... set aside half a day and best to leave in the morning to get clear views.

Beautiful walk, lots of stairs on the ascent but well set out & spaced. Well worth the extra 10mins to the Lookout on the Holly's Hut trail. Interesting range of vegetation and intriguing trail on the descent. A bit of clambering but safe and manageable.

track closed half way in june 2020 incredible view from the top. however, you can reach the main view point with a car

Beautiful, easy loop with a suspension bridge. About 30-40 minutes around. There are a lot of roots grown across the trail, so watch your step. Nice way to stretch your legs!

Closed off as river was too dangerous, not certain how often the trail is open

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.

Super randonnée, faites en 2 jours.Vue incroyable sur le taranaki vers la hutte pouaikai au coucher et au lever du soleil (les moments les plus dégagés). Le lac alpin est a environ 1 km de la hutte. N’oubliez pas votre briquet pour allumer un feu le soir ! Le lendemain descente depuis le Henry Peak difficile pour les genoux. Foret avec beaucoup de boue et de racines donc soyez équipés.

Nice trail of ups and downs so not too hard on any muscles. Cracking view from the top, well worth the trip.
