More information

The track is well marked from the carpark and sign beside the highway. The slope is moderate at the beginning but increases as you approach bushline. There are good views above the bushline and the rest of the climb is apparent before you.

Good views from Mt Haast • By pmcke. Licence: C.

 

Above the bush the route is marked by steel poles but is less defined on the ground. Easier going for the sure footed may be found by boulder hopping up rockfalls on the way
