Departure Point: Z Station Papanui

The Croesus Track is a loop track running from the Smoke-ho car park near Blackball up a bush covered valley to overnight at the 16 bunk Ces Clark hut which has great views of the Grey Valley. It's is a beautiful 4 – 5 hour walk into the landscape of the Paparoa Ranges. There is plenty of evidence of the local gold mining heritage, and a variety of vegetation and wildlife. There will be time to look around the old gold stamping battery and an opportunity to watch the sun set over the Tasman Sea, if the weather permits. The Croesus Track is one of the few pack tracks on the West Coast that ascends over 1000 m above sea level, and its high points provide excellent views of the Southern Alps and the sea. The walk out on Sunday will be via the skyline ridge route and then down through the bush via a hunter’s track to the Smoke-ho car park. It's an ideal tramp for people new to overnight tramping. 7 am departure
