    Made it to the saddle with our kids. Half carrying them and half them hiking. (4 and 2). Wasn’t too bad. Definitely a work out.

    Got a bit windy for the them even with extra layers and was advised by a few passerby’s not to attempt the peak with kids in packs. Steep scrambling. Etc. So we settled for the saddle...

    Views all the way up and at the saddle are insane.
    Best hike we did in Queenstown.

    Will be back next year with a lighter load. :)

    Lovely park stroll with some great views across the lake. A pond with ducks. Frisbee golf. Definitely not a hike. :)

    What a great trail. Starts along the river out of Arrowtown and then breaks off left for a bit of a steep uphill. Some stream crossings and awesome scenery finishes with beautiful view from the top. Had it to ourselves for a nice lunch. Ate some wild strawberries and had a swim in the river on the way back to the car. Amazing day. Huge fans of the Arrowtown area.

    First hike we did in Queenstown. The views are just unreal. Pretty steep walk to the top. We did it carrying our kids in packs most of the way... Definitely a workout. But worth it.

    My wife and I did this with our kids (2 and 4) on our backs for most of it. It MAY be rated easy. But definitely not with 40 lbs on your back. Also felt longer than 3.7 miles. Health app said 5.5. We went clockwise, crossing the bridge at the beginning. Amazing well kept trail through lots of shade next to the river. Some pretty steep sections all the way through. Birds and rapids heard throughout. The waterfall and cabin and views from the top near the lake were the highlights. Loved it!

    We do this loop several times a week. Tough in summer sun getting up those 4-5 steep sections with my 2 year old in a pack (35lbs) on my back.
    Have to wake up earlier apparently.

    Many variations. The regular way stays on the wide fire road trail. We clocked 3.7 miles to the picnic table and down.

    The hard way and several short but steep ridge trails branch off that main trail. Just take one of the left smaller trails that you pass in the flat section down below. They are all shorter but steeper variations. Think using hands and feet.

    Anyway doing this one as much as we do really helps with being ready for any other solid moderate trail that we've tried... It's a good training hill.

    Decent hike. Pretty crowded. A bit over rated.
