Beautiful alpine environment complete with birdsong and native bush. Great views once you get near the hut. Upon reaching the Mt Arthur Hut, continue past it for 5-10 minutes following the trail to the plateau above before turning around. These are the best views of the Tasman Bay and Kahurangi National Park.

Well maintained track, great signage. The track is mostly uphill on the way out, mostly downhill on the way back with a few flat areas. Toilets can be found at Flora Carpark and at the Mt Arthur Hut.

If you know of any public toilets near the trail start or on the route, please login and then let us know so we can update this section.

Parking at Flora Carpark. Own vehicle (4 wheel drive recommended) required.

Generally good.

Water should be available at Mt Arthur Hut but after a dry spell it shouldn't be relied upon.

Care needed in winter on both the access road and the trail as this is an alpine environment and the weather can close in suddenly. Check the foreceast and be prepared with appropriate clothing and food/water.
