St James Walkway - Lewis Pass to Boyle River
The St James Walkway is suitable for both beginners and experienced trampers, while for family groups the descent into Cannibal Gorge provides an invigorating shorter walk along a well formed, boardwalked track.
The St James was the first walkway to be established in a sub-alpine area. It is well signposted and marked, including stretches of open farm land where cairns and markers indicate the route. About 66 km long, it is designed to take five days, allowing walkers to enjoy the scenery at a leisurely pace.The walkway is not difficult but the climate can be extreme. It should not be attempted during winter months unless you are an experienced tramper
