I loved the hike along the top (once I got there!) along the ridge. Beautiful views...you feel like you’re on top of the world. Side hikes to the cave and waterfall are a must!

Absolutely loved this hike! Time spent with people from all over the world in the huts was great. Would do this again and encourage you to try it! Beautiful!!!

Enjoy changing perspectives of Milford Sound as you follow the foreshore path.

The Chasm Path is a well-maintained gravel walkway through lush green forest to a series of bridges overlooking the Cleddau River with its powerful waterfalls and smooth round potholes carved by the swirling water. Only a few miles from Milford Sound and just off the main Milford Road, this is a short but worthwhile stroll.

i did it under snow and low clouds but it was still magical to be above the bushline

Did the hike in and back as a loop. Lots of seals!

Perhaps my favorite Great Walk.

Great tramp! Unfortunately couldn't reach the very end as of spring snow and lack of equipment.

Well, if you want a challenging hike, you found it here! Due to the climate of this region, expect this trail to be very wet - several mud bogs to cross over, plus slippery roots and four creek crossings (with slippery rocks). You can see some amazing flora and fauna here, particularly birdlife. Give yourself plenty of time: the sign posted at the trailhead is full of lies (2 hours one way is optimistic). As much as it was a challenge, it was one of the most memorable hikes I've done. Bring spare socks to stay dry!

Beautiful! when you get to the top it will most likely be misted over, but still very cool. Def bring a rain coat and lots of deet.

Good! But don't go during the off season. Avalanches prevented us from crossing the pass and eventually had to get choppered out. Pack extra wet gear because it rains a lot. Beautiful scenery and a very fun experience.

The Milford Track is famous for a reason. You make appointments with the two huts along the way and then schedule your pickup at the end through Milford Sound. It will rain. Maybe every day. We lucked out and it only rained the third day, so we blasted out the 12 or so miles soaking wet but it was flat. We were rewarded with a foggy Milford Sound surrounded by hundreds of waterfalls. The rest of the track is as beautiful as you can imagine, the waters crystal clear, the trails immaculate, and the staff friendly. You will probably meet some very interesting and friendly people along the trail from all over the world. Once in a lifetime hike. Also, someone WILL snore in your hut.

Pick the best weather day and get up there! It offers completely stunning 360 deg views and lovely green healthy vegetation the whole way up.

I hiked this trek on a cloudy, rainy day in late-January. The Milford Sound area had seen only one sunny day in two months, so I wasn't alone in my wet experience. The path is mostly a steady ascent of switchbacks amongst lush green, with a couple waterfalls near the base, and ending at a guided nature walk. There's a sign at the summit with a photo of the surrounding view, which gave me a glimpse at what I could have been seeing behind the clouds. Looks amazing; wish I could have seen it live! Nice trek, but do know that you'll be disappointed in a (lack of) vista reward if the weather isn't in your favor.
