This 3 km track is located 1 km west of Murchison, at the junction of State Highway 6 and Matakitaki West Bank Road. The track zigzags uphill to the skyline. The biggest river that can be seen from here is the Buller which eventually flows into a gorge - perhaps the most scenic gorge in New Zealand.

Ranking: 8/10

A joint Lions Club and DOC project - well worth stopping but signage not good and easily missed. Great views of the 4 rivers plain.
