ROUTE GUIDES : Sorry not available!


The tracks are well formed and, on the whole, the terrain is gentle. The distance to cover is rather long though for people unused to walking. Because there are no large rivers to cross this is a good tramp to do in bad weather. Your overnight stay is in the new 12 bunk Casey Hut (Serviced).


This is the only round track in Arthur's Pass. It starts and finishes 38km east of Arthur's Pass Village.
