Time: 4 hrs return. Distance 10km.

Zig zag up from Lake Cobb to the stunning vista at Lake Sylvester Hut. Then it's another 15 minute walk to Lake Sylvester itself. It's accessible alpine goodness for the adventurous family or those looking for a short-ish walk that gives great vista rewards.

Very pretty area but I wish the trail had a bigger parking lot!

Beautiful part of Kahurangi National Park from the famous Heaphy Track - less people!! Lots of one day or more day tracks around Cobb reservoir, very narrow route to this place. A lot of huts!

Good trip for a few hours, you can stay at Sylvester Hut near Glacier Lake. Unfortunately we had bad weather. But still nice!
