Otira Valley

This relatively easy graded track follows up a deep alpine valley on the northern side of Mt Rolleston. It climbs over an old glacial moraine.

Time: 2 hr return to the footbridge (unmarked route beyond)

Type: Walking Track


This track crosses an old moraine and continues through scrub and snowgrass until after an hour walkers reach the river level. In winter and spring they should go no further because of avalanche danger. In summer it is safe to walk another hour to the foot of the Otira Slide.
