Overview

Set off on this Cass Lagoon Saddle Overnight Hike in Craigieburn Forest Park if you’re looking for a hike offering the best of all worlds in New Zealand. Locals hike in huge numbers to Cass Lagoon for site seeing, a bit of hunting, and climbs on big mountains. Part of the Harper River meet the track which weaves through open, grassy flats and beech forest and connects to longer, harder routes where you can make side trips from a well-maintained hut.  Along the way, cross swing bridges and encounter rustic backcountry huts. While dramatic weather affects access to this track in winter, this route looks exceptionally good during this time.

Fitness: Challenging track with river crossings and a steeper climb up to Cass Lagoon. Moderate fitness required for people wanting a more challenging hike that can cope with hills, and depending on the weather soft snow conditions.

Pick Ups: From the local iSites (Information or Visitor Centres)

Duration: About 2 days
