How to find us

There are two access points to this track. Drive south for 2 km from Fox Glacier township, and turn left immediately after crossing the Fox River bridge. The Glacier View Road is narrow and unsealed so drive carefully to the car park at the end of this road. The track branches off the fully accessible River Walk Lookout Track.
