Lake Hochstetter

The route to Lake Hochstetter is a well maintained gravel road amidst a network of logging tracks. Although a large area is occupied by pine forest blocks the track mostly winds through native New Zealand bush and is a nice run. There are a couple of small camping spots on the cuff of the Lake Hochstetter.
