“a good walk with a great 360' view”
Review of Conical Hill

Reviewed 4 January 2014

We always walk up Conical hill during our stays at Hanmer.
The first stage of the walks steep but then zig zags gently
Recommend the walk on a low cloud day as sometimes you can look down onto the thick clouds and see the hills and peaks of the surrounding vistas.
Hiking boots are not reqd but shoes and socks may get wet in the mornings.Wehave pushed prams up there , gets the blood pumping btw.

Great little walk, though quite steep in places. Well worth the hike as the views at the top are really stunning and there is an informative plaque showing you all the nearby mountains.

Walk through the forest so lots of shade. Just take your time. No view until you get to the top. Can be windy at the top.

We tackled this as our first family walk & the worst bit was walking up to the start of the track from where we parked!!
The walk itself was enjoyable & not too challenging. There were places where the kids could do a bit of adventuring up different paths & a great tree which had fallen over some time ago to play on. Nice view from the top & a quick wander back down. Well worth it if you've got an hour spare :)

Our first time up the hill - wide and well maintained track for all age groups. Nice view from the top but partly restricted by trees. Very popular and a great spot for a picnic.
