The first part of this walk is through a marked public access easment on private farmland.

It is important to respect the landowner’s property and keep your distance from any livestock. Only stray from the marked track if it is to go around livestock. 

The public access easment is also on the top of an ancient glacial terrace. As a result, you will notice that the vegetation is entirely grassland. Therefore, the track does not offer much shade or protection from the wind.

Once you reach Landslip Creek, you will be on the public conservation land. Follow the marked route to Braemar Dome under Mt Stevenson. Though the route is uphill, the incline is not steep.

The landscape and incline makes this track an easy (though long) walk. However, for the same reasons, it is a simple mountain biking track and a popular ski-touring track in the winter. 

As the road to this walk is quite out of the way, this track is most popular with locals and those looking for time away from the busier areas such as Mount Cook and Tekapo. This is a perfect region for a quiet getaway.
