Really enjoyable walk

Loved this walk although I found it hard work (I've had both hips replaced though and I normally do a gentle 10,000 steps a day). Great views, well worth the effort.

Steady climb of about 45 mins on a well maintained track. Well worth the climb. Would perhaps go anti-clockwise next time.

Not that long ago a trek up mount iron might find you meeting one or two locals walking the dogs, but now it is very busy. A steep climb in places but the views backover the lake or up the valley towards Lugate are well worth the effort. A medium level of fitness would be required for this walk. This... More

Well worth the effort. Medium level of fitness required as steep in places but the view from the top makes the effort worthwhile. A must do in Wanaka if you have the time and the stamina!

Excellent fitness walk - steep climb up, but you are warm by the time you start ascending - rewarded with sensational views at the top - you'll see looks of locals (some with their dogs) on the way! Very popular, close to town & time efficient! Took us an hour but we did it at a fitness walk pace -... More

Great short walk best done in the morning for spectacular views of Lake Wanaka and Mountains. The track is wide and pretty.

Arrived in Wanaka after lengthy journey and needed some exercise. A straightforward enough walk up of c50 mins and some decent views at the top. Worth the hike. But not that special compared to some of the hills/sights we have seen recently.

We hiked up (240 meters) in a partly sunny afternoon and the higher we went the more astounded we became. The mount provides a 360 degrees view on the whole area and mount aspiring park. You see two lakes and several valleys around. The hike is about 1.5 hours round trip and parking is free next to road 84 in... More
