Te Anau | Milford

Lake Marian

Date: 23 Feb 2023

Just down the Hollyford Rd off the Milford Rd – “It’s only a 3.5km walk” turned into a 2 hour clamber up mostly unformed rocky steep tracks, but well worth the effort and I’ll never go there again.

The photos include a quickie of Milford because we wee only there for an hour, it was a murky day but the carpark was jammed full and the tourist buses were beginning to arrive. We were very happy to stay at a DOC camp just the other side of the tunnel so we could get in and out before the worst of it. There is a nicely done walkway beside a Mirror lake further down the road too.

We did this ride both ways last time we were down here, so Jill met me at Manapouri this time to make it an easy day. It’s mostly a very easy track with a couple of stretches of grade 3 and a 4 km section on the road still.

31.6km, a surprising 460m of climbing | 36% battery use.
