About

***Road access and walking tracks are CLOSED FROM late OCTOBER to 17 DECEMBER 2018 due to forestry operation***

This circuit track passes through an exotic forest and around a peninsula jutting out into Lake Benmore.

The views are very impressive - especially earlier in the mornings when the weather is generally calmest.

Complete a loop or return the way you came.

Getting there: Travel along SH83 to Lake Benmore, between Otematata and Omarama
