Tips
Getting There

This loop climbs Roberts Ridge out to Lake Angelus and returns via Speargrass Track. On the first section along Roberts Ridge, the trail is mostly flat along alpine meadow with occasional scrambles over boulders, be sure to carry enough water for the day as there is no where to refill until you reach camp at Lake Angelus. Returning via Speargrass Track is through dense forest terrain which might have some overgrown sections and can be very muddy, especially near river crossings.

Good footwear and gators might be a good idea if you take the return via Speargrass Track. Be sure not to leave any valuables in your car at Mount Robert carpark as it has been reported that robberies are common here. It is recommended to use the lockers at the Nelson Lakes visitors centre.

Parking at the Mount Roberts car park.
