Ball Hut Track is a 4.3 kilometre out and back trail located near Mount Cook Village, Canterbury,South Island, New Zealand that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and bird watching.
Tasman Glacier is one of the glaciers to come off the Mount Cook range in Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park. It is the larger glaciers that many smaller glaciers (i.e. Ball and Caroline) feed into. You can view the glacier with ease at a distance from a lookout point not far off the road. A better option for the more fit, is to head out to Ball Hut on a relatively easy-intermediate 3 – 3.5 hour mostly flat walk. Ball Hut is located near the end of a glacier moraine shelf at the junction of Ball and Tasman Glacier. It is a tiny hut, and only sleeps 3, but it’s position is ideal.
