Harper Road, Lake Coleridge, South Island.



Ryton Track to Lake Ida 2 hours return, easy This track starts between Lakes Evelyn and Selfe on Harper Road. Follow the orange track markers through low-growing alpine plants around the base of Little Mt Ida to a hidden alpine lake. The track goes through a stand of pine trees just before you reach the lake. Note where you exit the trees to find the track home again. The track can be icy and the lake can freeze in colder months. The walk is about 6km return. Ryton Track to Lake Catherine (Monck) 4 hours return, moderate This track is closed beyond Lake Ida during Oct-Nov for lambing/calving. Follow the track to Lake Ida then use the small rock dam crossing Lake Ida to continue onto Lake Catherine. The track is marked with orange track markers but only moderately formed in places and crosses some swampy areas and river tributaries.
