Went up with rain threatening. Long path and really very steep in places for a short span. View from the top is great but perhaps not as inspiring as you might think. It sits in such a jaw dropingly beautiful place its perhaps not surprising.

I dragged my wife up here and she loved it despite being very anti walking. Lovely views of the area at the top. We did the walk clockwise which took a little longer than if you go up and down the same track but worth the effort. Might be nice walk to try at night? If it a hot day then I recommend waiting until the late evening to start your walk.

Difficult to not enjoy a trekking in New zealand. It has always been great moments for me. This trek was one of the best, a must do around the lake. I came in wanaka for it and didn't regret it.

A steady walk up to what must be one of the best 360 degree views of Wanaka and surrounds.
Well worth the sweat. (it was a clear blue sky day when we did it)
Good track. Spend time at the top. Soak up the beauty or the area.

Park at the foot of the hill. A long walk up mostly well made gravel paths. Fabulous views all round from the top.
Careful on the descent, some of the gravel path areas can be a bit slippy.
