Stunning Views

A steep and slippery track in parts but worth the effort. Views of the waterfalls are enjoyed along the way. The lookout platform provides good views of the old rail line, the lake and surrounding mountains.

A real shirtfront!

Do yourself a favour and stop in at Kingston on the way through to Milford or Wueenstown and climb this decent uphill track. We are fairly experienced walkers/hikers and this tested us, especially coming down. Worth the effort for the amazing views of Lake Waitape and Kingston Town. For those of you not into scrambling up mountains, go for the Scenic reserve walk which is for intermediate walkers.

Up up up!

Great blast up some steep inclines towards the top of the lookout. Waterfall and fresh spring water on the way up! Testing for a beginner/intermediate walker/tramper.

Really enjoyed the view from the top.

The Shirt Tail

Well here goes, its my 3rd time to get a reply from my track walk.
In a name dropper,have you been there well use the Shirt Tail as a starter. The Shirt Tail track begins near where the Kingston Flyer is stored. The track walk starts as a gentle but steady climb up with birds eye views of Lake Wakatipu & Kingston far below. The final ASSENT to the viewing platform is quite a steep climb so be prepared good boots & a walking pole for the descent. You feel like Hilary & Tensing when the rail platform is reached so don’t forget the camera to prove you reached the top. You may use the saying that Sir Ed Hilary used on Everest from the platform.

Nb. Have photos but wouldn’t transfer.
