Greenstone and Caples Tracks
The Caples and Greenstone Valleys are linked by McKellar Saddle, a sub-alpine pass, to make a moderate four to five day round trip. The Greenstone Valley is a wide, open valley with tussock flats and beech forest. In comparison, the Caples Valley is a narrower valley filled with forest interspersed with grassy clearings. Either of these tracks can be linked with the Routeburn Track, or they can be walked as a one way track starting or finishing at the Divide.
