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.
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.

Clearly signed and well maintained.
Beautiful views, good walking path. A challenge but very rewarding.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Variety of short walks that can be linked for longer walks. Well signposted, good views across Queen Charlotte Sound. Good if time is short.
Beautiful, less information on the spot and toiley was smelly and we have had better.
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.
A beautiful walk along the headland - had nice weather.

A nice track opposite the Queen Charlotte Sound track. Good to do if you don't have time to do the QC walk as the views are similiar, but it only takes 3-4 hours.
Some road sections, but generally quiet, very scenic and interesting information. Good short walk (3hours).
Lovely 3 hour return walk.
