Set off on the first section of the Routeburn Track from The Divide (Te Anau to The Divide is 1H30). Immediately panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks of the Darran Mountains and the Humboldt Mountains begin to unfold. These types of views are those that you can consistently look forward to over the course of the next couple of days.

Pass the turn off to Key Summit and if you wish take this side path to the top, which is a 30-45 minute detour, but well worth it as the views from the top are unforgettable. You walk over boardwalks en route as the habitat here is particularly fragile. See rushes, mosses, orchids, bog pine and other small herbs that thrive here.

Descend back to the main track the way you walked up and cross Pass Creek before walking by the impressive 80m Earland Falls. The track hugs the cliffside and edges across several avalanche paths, also crossing Sunny Creek and a natural clearing known as The Orchard, as the trees here resemble fruit trees. Ford several streams before emerging from deep forest to a small flat area where you will see Lake Mackenzie Hut. This DOC Hut enjoys a tranquil setting at the southern end of the lake. The emerald waters of Lake Mackenzie beautifully reflect Emily Peak and other prominent summits.
