A great walk
This is a great easy track for some one wanting to get into longer tramping routes. Usually it is hiked in a loop with returning on the Cables Track in the next valley via the McKellar Saddle. The full loop takes 3-4 days with some days getting close to 7 hours of hiking. There are huts along the trail and quite a few of them are serviced, and have quite a few bunks. Always best to get to them early to assure you get a spot. The Greenstone valley is made up of spectacular beech forest and tussock lands with massive mountain peaks high above. The occasional waterfall drops into the beautiful Greenstone river that you will walk beside for most of the hike.
