Estimated Times to Run







Once you cross over the Waiohine gorge swing bridge, follow the track up to Cone Saddle for a bit until you come to a fork. The track up to Mt Reeves is to the left (actually kind of straight ahead) and is not marked with a sign (however, there are orange triangles the whole way up).

After 1-2minutes you will reach a stream to cross (large orange triangle on the other side). Once crossed, you will begin the climb.

Near the top, the track joins onto the more well-trodden Mt Reeves track. Once at the summit, you then make the descent to Tutuwai hut.

From there, you follow the river up to Cone Hut. From there, you head back to the car park.

This trail includes the peak Reeves.

The track from the Waiohine swing bridge to near the top of Mt Reeves is not marked with a sign. However, the track is well defined and there are plenty of orange triangles.

Very patchy.

Lightweight fleece top, Windproof jacket, Personal Locator Beacon (PLB), Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map

There are a number of streams along the way - the only place where it may be hard to find water is between Tutuwai Hut and Mt Reeves.

Slippery after rain. There are some exposed tops; so be sure to go when weather isn't too bad.
