Description

This is a 3 day trip to Mt Owen from Courthouse Flat.  It is on the fit side of medium, and a reasonable level of fitness and ability on rough terrain are required.  See the DOC website for further information about the track: https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/nelson-tasman/places/kahurangi-national-park/things-to-do/tracks/mt-owen-tracks-and-routes/ (we are doing the Northern Route). 

We will stay at Granity Pass Hut both nights.  It's a 12 bunker, it may be a good idea for some people to bring tents in case it is busy, or at least a sleeping mat to put on the floor. 

Day 1: Courthouse Flat to Granity Pass Hut (6 hours), 1000m climb.

Day 2: Climb Mt Owen (1875m), return to Granity Pass Hut for a second night (7 hr return).  600m climb on this day, over rough terrain.  Spectacular views if the weather is fine.  

Day 3: Return to Courthouse Flat by same route. 

Please note the is a FULL THREE DAY TRIP, Friday - Sunday.
