There are a steady stream of enquries about the Motatapu Track between Wanaka and Arrowtown. People must be planning well ahead for their spring and summer tramping trips. I can't imagine many would be walking it at this time of year when there's likely to be snow over much of it.
I haven't tramped the Motataup myself. And I don't expect to in the immediate future either. The Wanaka and Queenstown area has such a wealth of wonderful tramping routes that the Motatapu isn't likely to rise to the top of my list for a while yet.
However I accept it does appeal to a lot of people. So to help people with their planning, here are the best links I could find, all in one place:
