This is a great trail with several huts along the way. It can get very muddy with difficult water crossings. Use caution before setting out on this trail. https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/otago/places/mount-aspiring-national-park/things-to-do/tracks/rees-dart-track/

Beautiful trail in the valley. I did it from muddy Creek to Paradise. Muddy is the term for the trek ! Especially the first day, my feet were completely wet and if you're not careful, you can get mud to the knee. The views are stunning all along, and the huts are very confortable ! Take the time to do the cascade saddle as a side trip, it's worth it ! For the fastest, you can combine the second or the third day with the cascade saddle (it's a very long day but doable)

Nous avons fait juste sur une journée, 6kms jusqu’au pont donc très facile au niveau du sentier, un peu boueux mais magnifique !
