Reviewed 17 August 2013

Quick, great walk, not physically difficult, good footings, offering fabulous views down to the township...then drive across town to Diamond Lake walk (awesome!) and finally head to Rippon vineyard :0)

“Good hike”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

This hike offered great views at the top. We're reasonably fit and found it to be a good workout, but wasn't more than we could handle. Well worth the time and effort.

“Great View”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

You should not miss it to get a really nice panoramic view of the whole area. Its an easy hike with lots of places to rest if needed. Just outside of the town (across the "puzzling world").

“Fabulous view”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

On a clear day, this little hike is quite the gem with panoramic views of the area. It is just across from puzzling world and gives great views of Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains.

“Brilliant Walk”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

This wall will definitely get the heart racing with views and with the walk itself. It's a strenuous 45 minute walk to the top but when you arrive it is definitely worth it for the panoramic views. There is a loop track to come back down however I have done both tracks and the one you come up is my preference to come back down - the loop track is definitely longer, in the shade and views aren't as good.
