This is a challenging tramping route.
From the Hollyford Road the track climbs steadily to reach the Routeburn Track at a point half an hour before the Harris Saddle. There is a creek to cross, which may be impassable after heavy rain.
From Hollyford Road up to the Routeburn Track takes about 5 hours.
There are fantastic views back over the Hollyford Valley and Fiordland mountains.
The track begins from the lower Hollyford Road, 2 km below Gunns Camp.
To find the Hollyford Road, turn off from the Milford Road (SH94) at Marian Corner, a few minutes towards Milford Sound from The Divide. Marian Corner is about 87 km along the Milford Road from Te Anau.
This is a route so you will need above average fitness and high level backcountry (remote areas) skills and experience, including navigation and survival skills.
Note: If you plan to stay at huts or campsites along the Routeburn Track, bookings are required.
