The hike up has you hidden the whole way until it opens up and shows you the glacier. It's definitely worth the hike though. Pack water. The only downside to this trail is the helicopters, they are nonstop and become annoying, they don't allow you to hear the natural sounds around you.

steep and steady climb to the top. nice views. nothing amazing

Easy loop walk, although there are stairs which make it not wheelchair friendly. The views are incredible, and the scenery unique. A must see!

Amazing!! Beautiful scenery and nature! Slippery in some parts.

Nice walk into the bush, easy. The tunnel is interesting wear a torch and boots. There is a beautiful view from the river all along the track

Is a really nice walk to the glacier point lookout l dis it in February now is close due the road is broken.

Hi, At the moment is close the last part because is a big active slip of the mountain there. But the Glacier view is nice from the carpark track.

Pretty walk around the lake. When the water is really still everything is reflected beautifully. The trail was only busy up until the viewpoint and further round the lake wasn’t too busy from then. Must do if in area

Nice easy walk up to the glacier. In February you can about 450m from the glacier when the weather is good. Was rather busy trail but did not spoil from the view.

Pretty short walk, the river is a beautiful colour. We got here at 7.30am and was amazing as we were the only ones there the entire walk. So try and check this place out early.

A great trail, simple to walk but very busy.

Such a great track especially after the crowded and noisy Pancake Rocks track - quiet, unpopulated by people and cameras, unhurried through a patch of rainforest with a lovely beach and waterfall at the end. Take the time to enjoy this one, particularly if you've just done the Pancakes.

Pleasant walk through the trees. Views not particularly exciting when it’s cloudy. Nice cafe and shop at the start.

Fantastic walk, best view of the glaciers without doing a Heli-hike. Mostly sheltered with a few great view points before the top. Just be aware the main car park is 3km from the start of the walk!

Stunning views of the milky turquoise water. Excellent effort to view ratio!

This is a relatively easy hike out to the glacier which has receded dramatically over the years. Interesting markers describe the locations of the glacier as it receded. Not as spectacular as Rob Roy Glacier but a lot more accessible.

Another beautiful well maintained walk to the ocean. Amazing rock formations. Worth the walk!!

This is a very popular tourist stop but worth the views. Plan to spend double the time walking the loop. Photo opportunities abound. Stop and have a delicious pizza (I had vegetarian) at the Pancake Rocks Cafe after your walk.

Very nice track and its very very easy. In 40min I've finish

Very nicely done! Great views and good information about the pancake rocks.

sweet tunnel will some glownworms

easy short hike, amazing views, tons of people. worth it.
