On a rainy day in November we wanted to do a walk but not invest too much only to get no views. We chose to do a circuit behind Arrowtown taking in the Miners Track, a section we hadn’t walked before. We couldn’t see much for most of the walk, so I haven’t included many pictures, but you can see more of what the area looks like in my posts on Crown Peak and New Chums Gully.
Track notes at the end.
Miners Track Circuit, Arrowtown: The Scenery
There are numerous options for walks on the network of tracks out back of Arrowtown. On this day we started on the Millennium Walkway at the end of Jopps Road. We then took the steep Tobin’s Drop Track (15), walked besides the base of Mt Beetham on Glencoe Road, then on to 13, 11b, 11a (the Miners Track), 10b, 9, 8b, 14b, then 15 and the Millennium Walkway back to the start. I think this took us about 4.5-5 hours from memory. You could drive to Glencoe Road and start there, which would save maybe an hour.
