2674 Te Anau-Milford Highway, Te Anau Downs

An easy, short walking track wanders from Milford Road through regenerating beech forest to the peaceful Lake Mistletoe. This small glacial lake is home to New Zealand Scaup (duck), frogs and other interesting wetland wildlife.

The 45 minute return walk is suitable for all ages and is a great family walk. The lake is a great picnic spot, so take your lunch!
