The Methven region offers visitors an array of hiking & walking experiences; from short walks suitable for the whole family, to challenging multi-day hikes across high country conservation land for the serious tramper.
Walking & Hiking Trails in the Methven Mt Hutt area
Personal locator beacons, owned by Methven Search and Rescue, can be hired through Hammer Hardware on the Main Street of Methven (Phone 03 302 9664) and are a must have item for people heading into the back country. These beacons (weighing only 250gms) once activated, will enable emergency services to pinpoint you to within 50 metres and organise your rescue. $10 per day, $20 a weekend, and $30 a week.
Visit the team at the Methven i-SITE Visitor Centre or Alpine Sports for additional information on local walkway & hiking trails. Alpine Sports have got the gear you will need to keep you warm, dry, safe and happy in the outdoors!
