The 400 metre (1312 feet) accent through beech forest rises up above the tree-line, arriving on the tussock clad tops of Key Summit to an alpine world of unique vegetation, tarns and 360 degree views.

The name Key Summit is derived from the fact the mountain lies at the source of three watersheds leading to three oceans – The Southern Ocean via the Eglinton and Waiau Rivers, the Tasman Sea via the Hollyford River and the Pacific Ocean via the Greenstone and the Clutha Rivers. Snowy Peaks, the vast forested Valleys and the perfect Alpine garden are all rewards for your efforts.
