Uphill hike, not too difficult. Suitable for folks of average fitness easily. Well maintained wide track. Lots of traffic on the weekend but all friendly. Beautiful views from the top. Recommend.

Well maintained with few hikers. Reasonable fitness is good idea. Can be a little slippery in the wet. Great afternoon walk in the bush. only 10min drive from central Rotorua.

Great view

very good route, the stream crossings were great, bit hard to see track in a couple of places, but really enjoyed myself.

Fantastic track. Amazing views!! An absolute must do when in the Tauranga area.

Fantastic views over the bay of plenty and surrounding coast!! Beautiful track, consistently uphill. Well maintained tracks. Great for the family.

Easily accessible, plenty of parking nearby or in the township. Moderate and steady climb, but very achievable. Good views from the top, as featured in most people's Facebook photos.

Great track! It feels very secret with the first part of the track being across sand and rocks and disappears among the trees. Easily overseen though! Took me 35 min. And then I had the whole beach to myself! The track continues for those who feel like a longer walk.

Easy hike, great view! Very accessible, close to the city therefore also a bit crowded.

Great track with amazing view

Blown away by the view

Great hike, plenty of options for steepness. Lots of people, but wide and well maintained trail.

really nice track to visit the mount maunganui. if it's clear you will have amazing 360° views . most of the track is easy. some steps nothing imposible

Walked this today and lovely easy walk to summit and various diff routes! Also a 3.4km track around the base giving great views! Just a nice afternoon!

Tough uphill. Plenty of alternative routes going up or coming down. great views

wow it is absolutely stunning. worth the walk and steps! loved it.

well signposted with varied terrain and some decent views. we went in early autumn and it was gorgeous but i can see how it could get challenging in winter when crossing the valley floor. Shouldnt be too much of a challenge for anyone of reasonable fitness.

I’ve been up the mount a couple of time. I would recommend going up to see the sunrise.
