An adventure!
Mei 2018 • Teman
A less popular track compared to the Routeburn well and truly worth it!
The views were incredible! Part of the track was flooded when I tramped it so parts were like walking through a swamp but was definitely an experience that I will not forget.
I’d highly recommend adding these tracks onto your too hike list! And doing them together makes it into a loop track so you can leave you car parked at either The Divide or the Glenorchy end.

Most spectacular scenery.

Well worth doing. Amazing views and great huts well spaced apart. Track well maintained . We took 4 days and 3 nights which gave plenty of time to stop and admire the scenery. Too beautiful to rush.

Do not try and ...
Nov 2018
do 31km of the track in one day. A group of us set out on a beautiful November day with a view to do a four day trek in three. Big mistake. A redeeming feature was the weather, we were lucky. Take plenty of gas for your cookers, things were getting dire for a cuppa on the last day, but we used the hust fire box to boil water. As always you will enjoy it more if you are fitter. Take your time enjoy the view, particularly at the saddle, and at the huts. Heaps of drinkable water from the fast moving streams and rivers. Lots of water crossings, some quite challenging, so have people with you. Sturdy footwear a must. Huts are of a high quality, make sure you have your tickets, as the wardens will be checking. Heavy rain in the area means that path can get covered in branches and fallen trees. Pack light.

Beautiful, diverse scenery
Des 2018 • Teman
Walked up the Caples and down the Greenstone. This was an amazing walk with beautiful scenery; rivers, mountains, bush, valleys, tussock, and wildlife. Particularly exciting was the deer we saw at the Greenstone hut and on the track when we were walking out. It was reasonably easy walking most days, the 2nd day over the saddle was a bit challenging as it was a couple of hours constantly uphill

More than a great walk
Nov 2018 • Teman
The Greenstone Caples track was fantastic. We completed the loop anticlockwise, making a big day of it first up with 31kms from car park to the McKeller Hut. It took us about 10 hours and I would say I walk at an average speed. Track is mostly flat, small ups and downs until you climb to the saddle. Following the saddle is a steep switch back as you track down to the Hut. There had been very heavy rains in the days leading up to our trek so there was quite a few Stream/river crossings and boggy patches. Day two was from McKeller to the Greenstone Hut which was again mostly undulating terrain that follows the river. This portion was about 6 hours but only 18 kms. Greenstone Hut is set in a beautiful clearing. We arrived with plenty of time to enjoy the afternoon sun on the large deck. Day three was the trek out and is fairly flat and only about 3.5hrs at a fast pace. A really great walk. The Doc Huts aren’t bookable but we had no problem with finding a spare bunk. Might be advisable to bring a sleeping mat in the peak season.

Easy walk in the valley
Nov 2018 • Sendiri
I did the Greenstone track starting at Lake Wakatipu end. There was snow down to the tree line and constant rain. Good shelter at the start and information boards useful. Generally though there could have been many more route markers along the entire route, especially when out in the open and the track can be covered with snow. Sometimes I was unsure of track direction, but never took a wrong turn.

Stayed at Greenstone and McKellar huts, both modern and new and a pleasure to stay at, both with flush toilets.

Overcast weather on day two which was nice. I only saw one other person on the track on the first two days, still early in the hiking season. Planes and helicopters did disturb the peaceful walk.

Track in many locations was actually a stream and there was no chance of keeping dry feet. Track was very easy going with very little climbing. Scenery was good, but mountain tops constantly hidden by the clouds.

Finished the tramp at the Routeburn.

Excellent Caples Track walk
Apr 2018 • Teman
Walked the Caples after the Routeburn walking south from Howden Hut. Well graded track up to McKellar Saddle and a spectacular alpine meadow with small lakes and views in two directions. The track down to Mid Caples Hut was well graded and mostly through the ancient Beech forest. Last few kilometres passes through riverine meadows and a fabulous walk.

Fabulous hike
Mar 2018 • Pasangan
The Greenstone/Caples track is a beautiful circuit that can be conveniently completed over 4 days/3 nights. The circuit can be done in either direction. The DOC huts are excellent and a very reasonable $15/person per night. The scenery is spectacular. Highly recommended for those who love to hike beautiful New Zealand.

Fantastic tracks!
Jan 2018 • Teman
We had planned to do the caples then onto the Routeburn track, but due to weather on the routeburn we did the loop track around the greenstone track - and we loved it!
The track is interesting, with different terrain from wide open valley fields, following the river (with many places to swim), bush tracks, and then up over the McKellar Saddle gives you great views and an alpine experience. The huts are fantastic, especially the Mid Caples Hut. Also an amazing swimming hole right by that hut where you can jump into the beautiful clear water (super deep water) - but remember the mosquito spray! Highly recommend these tracks! 3 nights, moderate length walks each day, great huts and just a very enjoyable experience 😊

美麗寧靜的 Greenstone Track
Mar 2017 • Sendiri
Greenstone 步道不難走,沿途盡是美麗的青台森林,難度不高,走全程或其中一段也很好,起點在 Routeburn Track 的 Lake Howden 開始,也可結合 Routeburn Track 連走。

步道上除了水源,沒有其他食物補給點,食物及行裝要注意
