Time: 1 hr 30 min return

When Lake Misery is low, you can carry on from the Nature Walk past the wetland area and through tall red tussock to the Otira Valley track.

Getting there

Most of the short walks start at or near the Arthur's Pass village, on SH 73, about 150 km from Christchurch.

Several bus services run between Christchurch and the West Coast daily, stopping at the village. The Tranzalpine scenic train journey also stops at Arthur's Pass.

Took us 90minutes return, did it in the wet but thoroughly enjoyed it. Being wet perhaps made it even better! Rocky path, fun to make own steppings.
