Clouds Gather on the Milford Track

The morning of the day that forced DOC to hold hikers at the hut they were at and cancelled an entire days hikers starting the track. It only happened once in the 2015/2016 season and this really was the calm before all the rain fell!

Rainy Days on the Milford Track

The Milford Track was closed recently for the first time this season due to flooding. Those of us trapped on the track at the time were held at our huts, but we did manage to escape for short day walks on non flooded sections.

Those bits that were impassable had water over head height and raging rivers across the track.

But Mintaro Hut is a great place for a 4 day, 3 night stay!
