This easy walk winds a short way along the bush-clad terraces at the south end of the village.
There is no access beyond the seats at the end due to a slip. You need to return the way you came.
Take a torch and explore this walk at night to see glow-worms in the forest, especially under and around large fallen trees alongside the track.
The walk starts off State Highway 6, at the southern end of Franz Josef village near the 'Our Lady of the Alps' church on the left hand side of the road heading south towards Fox Glacier. The track entrance has a very small parking area, but there is plenty of parking in town just a short walk away.
Eligible people must be fully vaccinated to use DOC accommodation.
