Lake Alta Track
The Remarkables access road will be closed from the 4 km mark at the end of the tar seal from 5 January 2015 until Winter 2015. This is due to increased heavy vehicle traffic while development takes place on the Remarkables ski area. A free bus service is available on Saturdays and Sundays. It departs the 4 km mark at 8 am and returns from the ski field base building at 5:30 pm. No bookings are required.
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.
