The track starts from the north side of the Glenorchy Queenstown Road. There is limited roadside parking on the opposite side of the road.
For the first 0.7 miles, the track ascends quickly with a few good viewpoints of Lake Wakatipu. At one mile, the Moke Lake Track is to the right. Shortly after, you reach the southern tip of Lake Dispute with a view of Mount Crichton above. As you run alongside the lake, the track ascends further revealing excellent views of both Lake Dispute and Lake Wakatipu. It then zigzags a number of times on its final stretch to the Mount Crichton Loop Track.
