Wander through red beech forest and take in the awe-inspiring views of the Eglinton valley, Lake Gunn and the surrounding mountains.
This difficult, 5km one way tramping track leads from the Milford Road and up the Mistake Creek Valley through beech forest to the river flats.
From the 'Earl Mountain Tracks' sign and carpark on the Milford Road, a short track leads to a walk wire over the Eglinton River. After this, follow the track sign pointing hard right to Mistake Creek. After about 1 hour 30 minutes along the true left, cross the river to the true right and continue to the open flat at the bush edge. The walk from the carpark to the bush edge takes about 3 hours. For experienced trampers, this track can be combined as an overnight trip with the Hut Creek Track.
Please Note: River crossing skills are required. In heavy rain these rivers can run very fast and high and require extreme caution - do not attempt crossing until the water levels drop.
