Introducing Milford Track
The 53.5km Milford Track is one of the world's finest walks. The number of walkers is limited in the Great Walks season (late October to late April), and you must follow a one-way, four-day set itinerary. Accommodation is only in huts (camping isn’t allowed).
Even in summer, expect lots of rain, in the wake of which water will cascade everywhere and small streams will become raging torrents within minutes.
In the off-season, there’s limited trail transport, the huts aren’t staffed, and some bridges are removed. During winter, snow and avalanches make it unsafe. It’s vital to check avalanche risk with DOC.
