Stockyard Cove Track, 45 min – 1 hr return
Travel by water taxi or private boat to Stockyard Cove at the western entrance to Hope Arm.
Two tracks lead from this point. The first heads west to West Beach where there are nice views of Lake Manapouri.
The second passes through ancient podocarp forest, climbing briefly until reaching the high bluff waterfalls and then descending through mountain beech forest to the lake edge. This track is also known as the Waterfall Track. It is advisable to return to Stockyard Cove following the same track as the foreshore is rocky, slippery and parts of it can be underwater if the lake level is high.
