A poled route to the summit of Travers Peak near Lewis Pass
The Foleys Creek Track starts opposite Deer Valley Camping Area, and sidles alongside the road through mossy beech forest. Soon, it turns and climbs alongside Goings Creek, leading quickly onto onto alpine herbfield with no scrub or tussock band. Poles lead directly uphill, following the narrow spur between Goings and Foleys Creeks.
The summit offers impressive views of Lewis Pass and the mountains around the St James Track.
