Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a nice 2km trail that winds through beech forest grounds alongside the Waimakariri River. Basically, it the first stretch of the the longer Waimakariri Valley overnight route that begins at this particular trailhead.

The trail is relatively easy and rides a sloping section of the forrest which opens from time to time providing views into the valley and the Turkey Flat, a wide section river bed. The views are quite nice. Eventually, at the end of the O'Malley's Trek, you can descend down to the Turkey Flat where you encounter the small river branches and more beautiful landscape.

Overall, we really liked this trek which is around 10km east of the Aurthur's Pass Village and would definitely do it again during future visits to the National Park.

Nice: There is a small carpark which you will find immediately east of the one-lane bridge that crosses the Waimakariri River on the West Coast Highway. When you see the DOC O'Malley's Track sign, follow the gravel road into the forested area around 40 metres to the place where you can park your vehicle. There is a toilet facility there as well.
