So I'm planning to walk the Milford Track in early June and was wondering what the conditions might be like at this time of year? I've read the information on the DOC website and though I'm physically fit and not particularly bothered by the prospect of wind and rain, I'm not an experienced Tramper, so am slightly worried the conditions may be unmanageable. (Though part of me also wonders if it's all a bit of an exaggeration?)
If I do decide to do the walk, is it worth booking huts, and transport ect in advance, or waiting until I know what the weather might be like closer to the time? (However, does there need to be a minimum number of people for the transport to even run?) Also what extra equipment would be suggested for these conditions?
Though I'd love to do the Milford Track, I appreciate it may not be possible, in which case I would be open to any suggestions of shorter Tramps based around the Te Anau area.
Thanks in advance for your help! :)
