Popular with trampers and anglers, the high river track is signposted 50 metres along the road from the Timaru Creek car park and leads to a 4WD track above the river. Follow this somewhat demanding, undulating track to Deer Spur Creek near Junction Hut (1.5hrs). Return by the lower river track. This requires several river crossings and is only recommended in normal flow conditions.

  • Start: Timaru Creek
  • Time: 3 - 4 hours return
  • Grade: Good level of fitness required.
