The trail starts at historic Ship Cove in the Marlborough Sounds. It winds through the Queen Charlotte Track's low forested ridges and pretty bays.
The tramping is easy - with lodges, and water-taxis to carry your pack if you're inclined. It is an ideal way to ease your way into southern trail life.
