About this track


This walk gently winds its way through subalpine grasslands and scrub to the Mueller Glacier moraine wall.

The track passes through a landscape that was formed in 1913 when a stream cut through from the glacier to the original Hermitage site, damaging the building.

The walk ends at a viewing deck that gives stunning views of Mount Sefton, The Footstool, Hooker valley, Mueller Glacier lake and Aoraki/Mount Cook.

There is a height gain of 180 m over 3 km.

Getting there

The walk is in Aoraki/Mount Cook village. For a longer walk, start from Terrace Road near the Aoraki/Mount Cook Visitor Centre; for a shorter wark, start from White Horse Hill Campground at the end of Hooker Valley Road.
