Nice hike, one hour and you're up, and rewarded with fab views. The lake and mountains are magnificent from there. Parking at the bottom

“Fantastic views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

If you have a spare few hours and want some fantastic views I recommend this walk. Well worn path and there are plenty of rest stops. Take water with you to drink on the way up if it is a hot day.

“A bit of a climb for an old girl but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Beautiful view of Wanaka and a lovely forest walk on the way down the other side. More seats to rest and look at the view would be appreciated and I heard one gentleman wonder wistfully if there would be a beer waiting for him at the top.

“Good short walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

Fabulous views from the summit. Well worn path, steep in places. Worth doing if you have a few hours to spare.

“What views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

Well worth going up here for great 360 views. Take the slightly harder way up(turn right out of car park) and you do the loop with stunning views on way down. Fairly tough uphill sections but plenty of rest points.
