Mt Cook, the Hooker Valley Track

Meg and I have backpacked and day hiked extensively in the Northwest as well as New England, We have also done several of the Great Tracks of New Zealand.  I have hiked the John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains and many sections of the Pacific Crest Trail.  Without a doubt, hands down, the Hooker Valley Track is the best day hike we have ever done.
The mountain, valley, and river views are as spectacular as anything you will find, anywhere. I have never been on a trail that is so comfortable, well maintained, and yet so “up close and personal” to the mountain.
