IntroductionThis farm track to the 1,226 m summit of Lindis Peak offers great panoramic views.
This public easement follows a farm track from Old Faithfull Road up to the summit of Lindis Peak (1,226 m above sea level).
From the top, there are great panoramic views of the area including the St Bathans Range to the east and the Southern Alps/Ka Tiritiri-o-te-Moana to the west.
The trailhead is located at the start of Old Faithfull Road, off SH8 22 km north of Tarras.
The Central Otago climate can swing to either extreme within a day. In winter the peak is covered in snow – a complete contrast to the dry and very hot conditions of summer. Prepare for these extremes with suitable clothing and equipment: sun hat, sun screen, water, warm and waterproof clothing and suitable footwear.
When walking ensure that you have a map and compass. The relevant NZTopo50 series map for this area is CB13 Tarras, available from the DOC office in Alexandra or Wanaka.
