About this track

Description

Glacier Burn Track
Glacier Burn Track

Follow the creek until the marker shows where to cross to the true left (looking downstream) and start climbing through beech forest. You can see old saw-milling snig lines near the start of the track. After two hours you will be in Glacier Basin, where you can follow the creek further up to view the Humboldt Mountains. Great bird life.

Getting there

25 minutes from Glenorchy, the track is signposted from the Glenorchy / Kinloch Road.

Know before you go

Don't go above bush line in winter and spring, as the area is prone to avalanches.
