Fand den Walk irgendwie nicht so beeindruckend, man hat zwar Wasserfälle, die auch echt cool sind aber mich hats einfach nicht umgehauen. Habe knapp 2 std gebraucht, an einigen stellen liegen umgekippte baumstämme und es ist insgesamt sehr schlammig.

great moss covered landscape to begin but very little diversity so quickly becomes less interesting. very wet/ boggy. we eventually reached a swamp and it wasn't clear how to continue so we turned around. took around 3 hours

This was an excellent hike. The sun was out and the sky was clear blue. This time on the track I was determined to make it to Brod Bay. Hiking along the trail in the shade of the palm and beech canopy was cooling, but I was drawn to the beach and spent most of the time walking along the coast, off the beaten path. I spotted deer tracks in the sand and it was interesting to see patches of moss and a whole other islands of micro worlds existing on large rocks. The round-trip provided diverse scenery and it was nice to finally reach the campsite and lay in the sand and not think of anything.

Beautiful short 30min walk through the bush to the swing bridge overlooking the river. Went on a cloudy, rainy day and was still people around. Would recommend visiting in the summer to swim in the turquoise water.

Did back in February. Amazing tramp, trekked it during the floods and severe weather warning, bucketed with rain but felt like truly experiencing nature and at its mercy. "There's no such thing as bad weather, just wrong gear choices." Beautiful walk, amazing experience, highly recommend.

Incredibly muddy and slippery but super fun! Just be careful. Also the elevation isn’t totally accurate; you basically do that elevation multiple times through up and downs but fun and worth it! Takes about 2 hours

Great hike! Decent fitness can get to top in less than an hour. Very fun to crawl up the roots and view is beautiful. Slippery coming down and make sure to follow the orange triangles.

Hiking

Although I have yet to complete the hike up to the hut, I have spent many days and hours ambling through this track up to Brod Bay. The beginning of the track is flat and to the right, you can see Lake Te Anau and the stoney beach. I'm amazed at how radically different the forest is compared to the beachfront. One second you're shrouded in forest and the next you're exposed and standing on a wind-whipped stoney beach. Further along, you encounter heaps of small waist-high crown ferns as far as the eye can see. Mixed in are beech trees, rimus, and larger palms that blanket the sky. During the winter months, I've been thankful for the canopy coverage from the rain. One time I had to take cover at Dock Bay and happened upon a black Weka which was a pleasant surprise! It's a peaceful feeling as you go along further as the track eventually become surrounded fields of green moss which blanket the forest floor. Tons of hypholoma australianum grow red and orange, some big enough to look like small pancakes sitting on a bed of green fluffy moss. Lots of orange pagoda fungus and coral fungus line the track as well. I even found a rare unidentified Sarcodon species. If your end goal is to reach the hut then so be it, but just meandering around the forest and taking some of the side tracks to just sit and forest bathe in the greenery is meditative af. I'd give this track a high rating given the diversity and change that occurs in such a short distance.

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!

Wow! What an amazing mind battle trail. If you are in the area, you must do this trail. Filled full of up and down hill battles but filled full of incredible views!
