“A short spur trail, all on boardwalks, that leads to Okaka Lodge and up to the tarns on the ridge above the lodge.”— Kristen McGlynn
The trail loops around spectacular rock formations and several crystal clear alpine tarns, and you can spot Stewart Island in the distance. If you look closely to the south, you can see the impressive boardwalk of the Hump Ridge: Okaka Hut to Edwin Burn section rolling along the ridgetop in the distance.
If you are staying at the Okaka Lodge (highly recommended) take a stroll out along this section at night for a memorable celestial display. If you are lucky, you might even be treated to the sight of the Aurora Australis.
