The Hollyford Track (56km, 4 days) is the only major low altitude track in Fiordland National Park.

It starts about a two-hour drive north of Te Anau and follows the Hollyford River and Lake McKerrow to Martins Bay.

Road end to Lake Alabaster (19.5km, 5–7 hours)

The track starts with a raised boardwalk through flood-prone country and follows the Hollyford River valley to Hidden Falls Hut. It then continues along the valley, climbing Little Homer Saddle, then passes Little Homer Falls and continues on to Alabaster Hut on the southern shore of Lake Alabaster.

Lake Alabaster to Demon Trail Hut (14.7km, 4–5 hours)

The track goes through flat forest for a couple of hours before following the eastern shore of Lake McKerrow to Demon Trail Hut. This part of the track is not very well maintained and fallen trees may obscure it.

Demon Trail Hut to Hokuri Hut (9.6km, 5–6 hours)

The track continues along the lakeshore to Hokuri Hut. This section is very rocky.

Hokuri to Martins Bay (13.5km, 4–5 hours)

After crossing Hokuri Creek, the track follows the shore for a couple of hours and then heads away from the lake and joins the river mouth near Martins Bay Hut.
