Discover the stunning Wanaka region as you travel from Wanaka Lake, through open tussock grasslands to the summit of Roy's Peak.
The track begins by zigzagging along a steep 4WD track from the carpark to the conservation area. From there, continue on through wild tussock grasslands until you reach Roy's Peak summit.
Along the way, take time to enjoy the spectacular views from the ridgeline, which take in most of Lake Wanaka and the surrounding peaks, including Mount Aspiring.
