Mountain Bike to Boundary Creek Hut

Rate this Adventure New Zealand Boundary Creek Hut

Added by Nico babal

  • Distance: 18 km (11.2 miles) roundtrip
  • Minimal elevation gain
  • Fantastic high country views
  • Refurbished hut

The track to Boundary Creek Hut follows an old 4WD track for about 9 km () with minimal height gain on the way in. Not long into the ride, you will pass another 4WD track with marker poles – this heads to the Garden of Eden (not the glacier one), so keep on the main track.

About 2 km (1.2 miles) from Boundary Creek Hut you will have reached the highest point on the track. You will pass another 4WD track poled route, which heads towards Mystery Lake in behind Lake Clearwater. From this point, it will be all downhill to the hut, and this is the steepest part of the track.

At the bottom of the hill, round the corner to arrive at Boundary Creek Hut, an old, corrugated iron hut in a big, open, sunny spot right beside Boundary Creek. It has about 6 bunks inside, concrete floor, an open fire, table with chairs and even a couch – talk about a bit of backcountry luxury.

Hike to Robert's Point (Franz Josef Glacier)

New Zealand / Franz Josef Glacier Trailhead

This trail is one of my favorite in New Zeanand. It wasn't so much 'built' as it was 'discovered'. The trail follows natural erosion and clean exposed flows of glacier carved granite walkways.

New Zealand / Fox Glacier Carpark

From the carpark follow the well marked trail to the toe of the Fox Glacier. Do not stray from the trail as unstable ice and moraine can be very dangerous.
