The trail is a fairly easy four-day hike. The track is highly regulated and is accessible via a guided group or as an independent hiker. Best time to hike is March, when the temperatures are warm and there may be less rainfall.

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.

Milford Track affords stunning views from the top of the pass, Southland Falls are well worth the walk in from the main track. Note this app shows the start at Milford Sound, the walk actually starts from Te Anua Lake. The first lodge is Glad House. You can walk this with an organised hike so you only carry your personal effects. Enjoy!
