This interpreted walk climbs steadily to a picturesque glacial lake.
It begins on the road behind the Remarkables skifield buildings and follows a skifield road to the top of the Alta Chairlift. From there, cairns and flagstones mark the way through alpine wetlands, up to the glacial cirque.
South of the Kawarau River on eastern side of Lake Wakatipu, turn off SH 6 at the signposted junction to the Remarkables ski area. The track starts at the skifield buildings.
