This track leads from the official car park at Mount Cook National Park up towards Mueller Lake and then alongside the Hooker River on into Hooker Valley. This is an easy walk over a reasonable track. It is linear due to the fact that there has been serious rock falls in the area and we were only able to go as far as we were allowed by the park rangers. We were unable to get as far as Hooker Lake and therefore unable to see the ice-bergs floating in the lake.
The weather was superb and the views of snow covered Mount Cook were truly magnificent. There has been considerable work done here in replacing the old rope and timber suspension bridges with new ones. Up to a few months ago this track was even more restricted as they were still working on one of the bridges lower down the track.
The sheer size and enormity of the boulders here are impressive and the slate grey colour of the glacial run-off river was most unusual. Due to the unusual good weather lately the flow in the river was not up to its normal level.
(Due to the dates and times on the Satmap GPS still being set to Irish time, the start and end date and times look a little odd!).
