Tutoko Valley Track

Coordinates: -44.677450, 167.963090

In my opinion this archetypal Fiordland track provides the best short, family friendly, forest walk on the Milford Road. It seems impossible to shake off the expectation of quietly grazing moa around the next bend. There is something completely primal amongst the dripping moss and ferns. Turn around when you have had enough and head back to the Tutoko Bridge.

The first open clearings are reached in about 2 hours, potential routes beyond this point require considerable experience. Refer to Moir's Guide available from the Te Anau DOC Visitor Center.

Please clean your boots with detergent provided by DOC at the trail head to prevent the spread of Didymo (or rock snot) to this pristine area.
