Nice short trail on Stewart Island for those that want something quick and very scenic. The trail goes through native bush, to secluded white sandy beaches and stunning coastal views. The track is well formed, in good condition and there are a lot of steps at Dead Mans Beach. If you want to make it longer, run from Oban and start the track from Braggs Bay.
