Hikes for Milford and Doubtful Sound

Hi,

I am planning on going on cruises in both places but was hoping to do some hiking as well. Can anyone recommend hikes in either/both sounds. Thanks much.

There are no hikes at Milford Sound because the nature of the steep-sided fiord means there is nowhere to go. I did read where somebody did the last bit of the Milford Track by taking the ferry to Sandfly Point. There are numerous short walks along the Milford Rd which are worth doing, esp Key Summit.
