Really nice walk, easy access, good views.
A lovely walk in the Marlborough Sounds. The view is impressive at Queen Charlotte lookout. After that, the walk gets harder and slippery until Snout Head. There is a nice grassy spot at the end and a nice, but less impressive view of the Sounds.

Very well marked track just outside of town. Takes about 3-4 hours return.
The Snout Track was fun. A great view and a short walk. The walk to the top was hard but then you go back down so that makes it easier. It was after a rainy day so the ground was a bit muddy but not something that would disturb the trip.

Good, amazing spots.
First walk in New Zealand, okay but there were better ones to come, very windy on the Snout.
It is ok, really nice walk. About 2 hours to get there. Not many people on the track and one of the best views I have ever seen!

Amazing view of Queen Charlotte Sound and Picton. Do not miss it if you are staying several days in Picton.
Phenomenal place for a run. Or a tramp with the kiddo. Beautiful scenery abounds.
Short, nice walk.

Exhausting track but well worth the view! We even had a kiwi bro chilling with us at the end of the track as we ate jelly beans and waved at the boats.
Nice leg stretcher through forest area. Nice views and a very windy front end of the track.
Nice short to medium walk with a beautiful views over the Marlborough Sounds. You can get there by car and there is free parking.
