Note: This is the same trail as "Lake Rotoiti Lakehead Track." My photos include pics of the "Cascade Track" from Lakehead Hut to Angelus Hut (trail not listed on AllTrails).

Spectacular views!! This is not for the faint of heart. You must be sure-footed and in shape as there are parts of the trail/ridge that is very steep on either side. Lots of bouldering. We went back down via Speargrass. Remember you must have tickets to stay at all the huts in NZ. You must get them BEFORE you plan on hiking or else it might be sold out. Also, a note to tourists- you're in NZ now 1) please be polite and respectful to others you're a guest here and should act accordingly 2) take your trash with you, don't litter on the trail or in the huts.

Super easy and short relaxing walk with a nice view over the lake. The terminal face of Tasman black glacier is visible although quite far away. Big park nearby. Interesting partial view of Mount Cook. Family-friendly walk.
