The Grandview Mountain Track (previously known as Grandview Creek Track) gives access to the vast Grandview Range.
Pockets of kānuka shrubland merge with the pastoral land on the lower section of the track before opening up to the tussockland that dominates the tops.
Climbing steadily the track passes several small remnant beech forests on the opposite side of the creek, before reaching the station boundary at 1260 m then Grandview Mountain at 1398 m; an elevation gain of 958 m from the car park.
Trampers are rewarded with stunning panoramic views over Lake Hāwea, the pastoral flats through to Lake Wānaka and local peaks. On a clear day, Mt Aspiring/Tititea’s distinct profile can be seen on the horizon.
A marked route leading from the track drops into the Grandview Creek giving access to the conservation area that bears its name. Continued travel into the conservation area becomes restricted by steep bluffs.
Time: 9 to 12 hr
Distance: 26 km
