Upon arrival drive slightly further north of Arthur's Pass Village to the beginning of the Bealey Valley Track, a short walk that will take you through mountain beech forest and to the base of Mount Rolleston.
From the car park opposite Jacks Hut, the track follows a short section of the Arthur’s Pass walking Track before branching off to cross Bealey Chasm — a narrow channel where the river cascades over huge boulders. For stunning views of Mt Rolleston/Kaimatau, continue on for a couple of minutes, climbing a hill to a snowgrass clearing. The track re-enters the beech forest and ends when you reach the Bealey River. This track is subject to avalanche hazard in winter past this point; please heed the warning signs.
