The peaceful Lake Matheson Walk is enjoyed by many visitors to the Fox Glacier region, and is suitable for all fitness levels. The track begins by crossing a suspension bridge over the Clearwater River, before weaving through lush native forest all the way around the lake.
Allow 40 minutes return to the Jetty Viewpoint, or 1 hour 40 minutes for the full loop track. It is an easy going and well-maintained track, with the advantage of good canopy trees to shelter you if it rains.
There are three separate Out Foxing Guides on Lake Matheson, available from Fox Glacier TOP 10. These guides are full of detail on small forest plants, rainforest giants, and places of interest along the track. Be sure to purchase an informative guide from our reception so you can be your own tour guide.
