Upper Snowy Creek, Rees-Dart Track

Otago region map.

The Rees-Dart Track is a 4-5 day tramping circuit which follows the Rees River and the Dart River, through leasehold farmland and the southern part of Mount Aspiring National Park.

It is a moderately demanding tramp, and most days average 6-8 hours of walking. Spectacular mountain scenery, forest and alpine vegetation, rivers and the Dart Glacier are all significant features of the walk.
