Lake Matheson Walk
Reflections of Mt Cook near Fox Glacier (1.5hrs)
Lake Matheson is legendary for its reflected views of Mt Cook from the western side of the Southern Alps. One of the top short walks in the country, it will take about 1.5hrs for the full lake loop, while the first section of the walk, to the Jetty Viewpoint, is suitable for assisted wheelchairs. The carpark is 5km west along Cook Flat Road from Fox Glacier township. Turn right as signposted to the trailhead.
The excellent Lake Matheson Cafe sits at the start of the walk.
