05Oct18. Joined this from Bobs Bay Track. Some of it is along a gravel track with no shade. It was sunny and warm when we walked it.
We didn’t do the complete walk, just to Queen Charlotte’s Lookout. There is a drop loo there and a picnic table. Good walk
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.
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.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Beautiful views, good walking path. A challenge but very rewarding.
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.
Lovely walk spoilt by works going on closing the upper track but there was no warning of it being closed and so we had to retrace our steps - frustrating.
A lovely walk with real stunning views of the Marlborough sounds. So quiet + breath taking - a little challenging at points but well worth it.
Beautiful views, good new tracks, short walk. Lots of options along the way e.g. along the ridge, along a water way, out to a snout.
Track from the harbour to the snout. Plenty of good views, and it is for free 4hr walk.
