Start from the Hermitage lawn and cross the road to the track sign (or leave from the public shelter at the campground). This walk gently winds its way through sub-alpine grasslands and scrub to the Mueller Glacier moraine wall. The track passes through landscape that was formed in 1913 when a stream cut through from the glacier to the original Hermitage site, damaging the building. The walk ends at a viewing deck that gives stunning views of Mt Sefton and Footstool, the Hooker Valley, Mueller Glacier Lake and Aoraki/Mount Cook.

Nice, easy walk from the information centre at Mt Cook to Kea Point lookout. Great views of the Mt Cook on a clear day, although it clouded over quickly.
Nice, easy and short walk to the Kea Point. From there you have a really nice view of the Glacier.
Great view of the Alps and Mt Cook. Really beautiful area.
Nice quick walk which you can admire the majesty of the Mt Cook.
Short hike in Mt Cook. Another beautiful view of the glacier. Easy on the legs.
Beautiful views of mountains.
Not very good weather but good!!
Free but it is not very beautiful during the summer because the glacier looks like a lake.
Good looks on Mister Cook.
Wasn't very impressed with the grey lake :)
Better walks in the area, but it's a nice shorter one
Wonderful, amazing area.
Short track, great view of Mt Cook and glaciers.
Well gravelled, sign posted and suitable for the likes of us!
