“A great day hike for those wanting to get a good taste of what Steward Island has to offer.”— Kristen McGlynn
The start of the trail is steep and can be muddy and slick especially after recent rain. Do not be discourage by this rough start as the trail does lessen in grade and become a more enjoyable hike past the first half mile. After reaching the high point of the track, you'll start a gradual descent to connect to the Rakiura Track. A nice loop can be made by taking a right on the Rakiura Track to loop along Lee Bay if you don't want to do an out-and-back.
