Amazing hike with breathtaking waterfalls! Do note that the road to the trail head floods in places, so if you don't have a car with good clearance than you'll be walking about and extra 1.5 miles to the head.

5 stars because you will see everything on that trek (huge waterfall, snow, alpine, ice, river, perfectly blue water...etc)

I spent 10 years of my life guiding people on the Routeburn. If there is a 3 day trail that covers more beautiful and varied terrain anywhere in the world, I've yet to find it, and I've looked. Put the Routeburn on your bucket list. If you can only do two things on your visit to New Zealand, make this one of them.

My fav hike!! The huts are great and the scenery is to die for. Will def back to do this one. I started in reverse- Key summit to QT and really enjoyed it in this direction. I recommend poles. Very Rocky in some parts. Did in three days.

Very easy and good if you bring kids but not challenging and not much space to sit and enjoy the view at the end

Scenic and relaxing hike all the way! The drive here can be a bit of a pain with the gravel and small water crossings. Bring a picnic as the spot at the end is incredibly and you will want to hang out on one of the many rocks for a good while.
