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.

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.

Lovely walk, we did not hgo all the way down to the Snout as it was not worth it. 1 hr 20 min return, but we were high tailing it. We parked at Endeavour Park and took the Waikawa Track to the right until it met up with the Snout.

Park at Endeavour park, follow the Picton-Waikawa Track and it will meet the Snout Track on the left. We went to the Queen Charlotte view and back in 80 minutes, but were walking fast. The views were breathtaking.

Variety of short walks that can be linked for longer walks. Well signposted, good views across Queen Charlotte Sound. Good if time is short.

The first half of the track was with a rewarding view. The second half was very slippery and quite difficult and the view on the end was not very spectacular.
