It is a steep climb but well worth it when you get to the top of Mt. Iron. The views are 360 degrees on a very clear day and you will LOVE it. Going down of course was much easier and I even encouraged some...More

Our family group ranged from 2 years old to 70 years old. We walked slowly carrying the toddlers for some of it. The 360 degree view from the top is fabulous. A very scenic and enjoyable family outing.

A great thing to do if you fancy a shorter hike - it’s steep and gravelly so a bit challenging but manageable by all the family and with great views. It’s easy to fit into your day.

Cool views of the Wanaka basin - not too hard on the family - 45 mins and you are up. Well worth the hike.

It's a nice easy walk. It is steep (both uphill and downhill..) so be prepared. It's better to come back like you came (from the toilets side) cause it has a better view.

Another great short walk in New Zealand! A very manageable couple of hours return, you will find plenty of locals out for their evening run up there. The views over Lake Wanaka and to the mountains beyond are lovely, the trail itself well laid out....More

Hi, As in the previous answer - go out of Wanaka and park up on the left hand side of the road - no problems re parking. Go through the gate which is marked - towards the signed trail. You can go up one side and down the... More
