This track can be completed from either end. Some do the Goat Pass as a out and back. There is a hut located along the trail, service tickets can be purchased at the DOC in Arthur's pass. There is also a hut on the Deception River side that also requires a pass if staying there. The hardest location is the connection between the two trails. When coming from the Deception River be aware of the last trail marker telling you to turn up a side stream to get to the Goat Hut. There are many river crossings as you weave your way to your destination.
