This is a nice option to a different vantage point of Fox Glacier.

Description

Starting from the Douglas Track, Roberts Point Track crosses over the rocky riverbed and starts to climb up the east side of the valley. Along the way, you'll cross over many side streams and pass by small waterfalls, climbing steadily. After about 2.5 miles, runners will emerge from the woods to a clearing surrounded by rocky outcroppings. Hende's Hut is located here, and while it makes a nice option for a snack or lunch break, it isn't really suitable for an overnight stay.

From here, the track continues to climb until coming to a suspension bridge crossing Rope Creek. After the bridge, the track continues for one last uphill push to reach Roberts Point. The viewpoint is impressive, as all the climbing you have done rewards you with a unique vantage point of the glacier nestled in between the sheer rock walls and surrounding mountains. Be sure to take time to take in the view, looking closely for the many waterfalls rushing down the sheer mountainsides from the snowcapped peaks above.
