Otira Valley track

Otira Valley track

Arthur's Pass


Time: 2 hr return to the footbridge (unmarked route beyond)

The track leaves from a car-park beside SH 73, just north of Arthur’s Pass summit.This relatively easy graded track follows up a deep alpine valley on the northern side of Mt Rolleston. It climbs over an old glacial moraine, then follows the contour through subalpine scrub and tussock to the Otira River foot-bridge. On a good day this is an awesome walk to view the summer alpine flowers.

Warning: The track finishes at the foot-bridge. Travel past this point requires map reading and route finding skills. For experience alpine trampers and mountaineers only.

This track is subject to avalanche hazard in winter.
