Lake Sylvan Track
Image: Karin Noresten | DOC
This well-defined track leads through old moraine river terraces and very tall red beech/tawhai raunui to pretty Lake Sylvan, home to brown trout and numerous small native fish.
Returning via the 1920s tramline loop, you can compare regenerating beech in this cutover area to the untouched forest that you walk through on the way in.
Note: The tramline loop includes a river crossing.
Access is from the Lake Sylvan car park which is 30 minutes from Glenorchy.
