Mirror Lakes

Mirror Lakes

On a calm day, the Mirror Lakes are a highlight of Milford Road, Fiordland. The lakes are small (marked but not named on Topo Maps NZ) but well signposted with an unmissable parking area on the side of the road, shortly after the popular stop in the Eglinton Valley.

There is a short boardwalk through a pretty section of beech forest to several viewpoints above the lake. As the name suggests, it’s all about the reflections of the Earl Mountains, including the highpoint of Eglinton Mountain, in the lake.

Unfortunately, there is a good chance it won’t be as nice a day as the pics here were taken on, but it has its own dark murky attraction on a rainy day.
