Amazing multi-day bike adventure
Apr 2021
Amazing multi-day bike adventure. Spectacular country, outstanding views, well-formed track and great huts. It must have been an incredible effort to build. We appreciate all the effort that has gone into it!

Just an opinion

The highlight was Lyell Saddle and Specimen Point. The huts are inviting. The views along the trail is mesmerising. The Ghost Lake as awesome. Only one thing, may be change the name as some might not like staying put on hut on Ghost Road. Just an opi!

CONTINUES TO BE A HIGHLIGHT
Mar 2021
Just walked this wonderful track from Lyell to Seddonville with a friend 4 nights/5 days. It's my third time walking this track and just as great as the first. I agree with all the positives the other reviewers say but I want to include that Im noticing the trust is investing back now - new mattresses for all the bunks since my last stay in 2019 as well as some extensions to the shared dining areas and increased seating - both warmly appreciated. As per usual, they continue to upgrade and maintain the track. If I was to give advice to anyone who hasn't walked it yet - walking poles are helpful and the lighter the pack, the better the walk!

Fantastic walk, thoroughly recommend.
Mar 2021
Just got back from a thoroughly enjoyable hike on the Old Ghost Road. Like most people we traveled from Lyell to Seddonville and found the track, views, weather and over all conditions to be outstanding. Loads of bird life if you stopped to take it in. We usually took the recommended times to walk with loads of breaks, photo stops and the occasional bladder empty. Lots of mountain bikes on the track but that was never an issue, and people of all ages seemed to cope as well as us 5 menopausal woman. Id like to give it a most excellent rating. And make sure you stay at the Rogh and Tumble at the end, food great, bush shower awesome and lovely friendly ladies too.

Inspirational walk
Mar 2021 • Friends
Best hike I’ve ever done. Spectacular and varied scenery- rain and shine. Inspirational story of the building of the track. Walked Sedonville to Lyell. Rough and tumble lodge a great way to start. Huts and sleep outs so well designed. Loved the option to have bucket showers along the way.
Can’t wait to go again

Old Ghost Road Tramp
Mar 2021 • Couples
We just came back from this trek after walking it for a second time. It didn’t disappoint and the weather was kind. This is a must-do for tramping buffs. Top notch huts and facilities, beautiful diverse scenery and a good challenge though not super tough.

Best Yet!

This is a magnificent journey that takes you through environments that match or better any that I have experienced in 21 years of tramping. It is simply astounding as an engineering feat and the magnificent scenery it presents.

Walk OGR 4 days
Feb 2021
Completed (walked) the OGR from North to South with two family members - we did it this way as it meant we could book the 4 person sleep outs. We did the trip in 4 day (3 nights), meaning there were two 25 km days for the middle section. This would rate as one of my favourite New Zealand walks (helped by the fact we had perfect weather). The tracks are excellent, and the gradient is usually very mild, as it caters to bikes. The long days were fine as they are both relatively easy 25km (assuming you have a goodish level of fitness). The huts are nice - the supplied crockery and cutlery, and the bush showers were both very welcome. Generally no problems with bikers (we were always walking toward them). The scenery is magnificent.

Go!
Feb 2021
85km from Seddonville to Lyall. And what an experience. We were told we were going the steeper and harder way, but we disagree! We loved going against the onslaught of bikers and trampers, loved the short steep climb (versus the long moderately flat downhill) and loved looking into the scenery (rather than back at it). No sandflies and epic views. Excellent service - meeting the trail caregiver and the volunteer warden along the way. Thanks for your vision, Marion. Epic.
