See the stunning beauty of Western Southland on your thrilling journey down the once mighty Waiau as it winds its way through valleys to the sea.
This steep tramping track climbs from the edge of Lake Hauroko to a lookout with great views over the lake and nearby mountain ranges.
Starting near the jetty, this 2.9km track quickly becomes steep and rough - although it is well worth the effort. On a clear day there are stunning views of Lake Hauroko, Foveaux Strait to the south, the Takitimu Mountains to the east, and the Princess and Kaherekoau Mountains in the northwest. A four hour return trip, this walk requires good fitness and backcountry experience.
