“Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

To get to the top you have to climb up slopes and numerous steps, it is a very steep climb. That said, it is possible to drive so far up. The views are stunning and well worth the effort. Going back down is much faster!

“Gorgeous View”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We were short of time, so only drove up and went to the first car park area. Very easily accessible and the view was spectacular. Definitely worth a visit.

“What views”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

We visited when high winds had caused the Pacific Ocean to deliver high waves. These were visible on either side of the Mount. Spectacular. Parking is near the top with a clear track up.

“climbed and climbed”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Looking at the homes at the base of Paku was fun and we followed the streets until the homes stopped and the real climb started. The trail is somewhat groomed and there are lookout points en route to the top. The top view is awesome and worth the trek. I wanted a t shirt which said I CLIMBED MT PAKU
