Lake Alta Track
Upper Remarkables Access Road closed from 12 km mark
3 March 2014: From Homeward Turnaround, 12 km along the road, the upper Remarkables Access Road is closed due to major earth works. A marked tramping track to access the Recreation Reserve and Lake Alta Track is available – it is rough and steep in places, 1-1.5 hours one way. For safety reasons, trampers must remain west of the perimeter fencing at all times.
1.5 hr return
Aerial view of Lake Alta
A steady climb to a picturesque glacial lake. It begins on the road behind the base building and crosses the Rastus Burn. The track climbs just over the burn, by the Sugarbowl Chairlift. Cairns and flagstones mark the way through alpine wetlands, up to the cirque beyond the top of the Alta Chairlift.
This is an interpreted walk.
Start/Finish: Remarkables Ski Field buildings
