View from Mt Alfred

A pleasant day can be spent walking up this mountain. The approach is on the Western (Dart) side of the peak - look for a carpark on the right hand side of the road. A good zigzag track climbs three quarters of the way.

After this, a marked route can be followed as far as the bushline. Above the bushline this track is steep and exposed. 

Getting there

Access to this track is from a car park off the Glenorchy-Routeburn Road, 20 minutes from Glenorchy.

Know before you go

Permission is required from Earnslaw Station for accessing the upper part of Mt Alfred - once you leave the bushline.
