The first 5 km section of this track follows an historical road, now a 4WD track. It opens up to spectacular views after the end of the 4WD track, where the route becomes more difficult.
The moraine wall throughout this area, including along the 4WD track, is very unstable and should be negotiated with caution. You will need to move with care and skill around collapsed areas at various stages along the route.
Ball Hut is close to the historic site of the first Ball Hut and offers superb views of the Tasman Glacier and surrounding peaks.
