This walk gently winds its way through subalpine grasslands and scrub to the Mueller Glacier moraine wall.
The track passes through a landscape that was formed in 1913 when a stream cut through from the glacier to the original Hermitage site, damaging the building.
The walk ends at a viewing deck that gives stunning views of Mount Sefton, The Footstool, Hooker valley, Mueller Glacier lake and Aoraki/Mount Cook.
There is a height gain of 180 m over 3 km.
