The first day has hard and included a tough climb but the trail is well marked and easy to follow. The starting point is the same as for the Routeburn Track but branches off to the right/north about 15 minutes in.
We camped overnight at the mouth of the Rockburn River where it meets the Dart River. There is a sponsored free shelter there (roof with one wall and a rocky floor) a few picnic tables and several good places to pitch a tent.
This trail also includes the start of our second day (the first hour or so) but we had trouble with electronics/battery life so the finish of the hike is listed separately as Rockburn day 2 .
Total distance for both hikes is just under 22 kilometers, should take around 8-10 hours with the first day much more difficult than the second. This is a great option if the Routeburn is too crowded or has major sections closed.
