Visiting the glaciers is an amazing experience. However if you can't rock hop it's very tricky to get a good view. We were at Fox Glacier at Easter and discovered this very nice short Glacier View walk where you truly get an awesome view and a very large bolder to sit on to admire the view! Heading South from Fox you drive over the bridge and go all the up the Glacier View Road (large camper vans are not allowed on this narrow road). There's plenty of parking and even a picnic table and standard DOC long-drop loo. It was a good well formed track with no major obstacles. Very pleasant even in the rain!
