Dore Pass

Coordinates: -44.947990, 168.015780

Glade House is on the Clinton River at the start of the Milford Track. It is possible to walk to the start of the Milford Track rather than boat there, but only for parties with New Zealand alpine experience. An ice axe is required, not to mention a bridgeless crossing of the Eglington River. The descent from Dore Pass requires skilled route finding and it is very easy to get bluffed.

For those capable of making the crossing it is a full days walk to Glade House and it is possible to pre-arrange a water taxi back to Te Anau Downs.
