Relatively easy wide trail, makes it a bit harder if it’s a hot day but the views at the top are unreal. Walk back down to the beach was nice as well and we saw a few sheep! Definitely worth the walk up top. Running shoes are probably a good idea but I did it in flip flops and was fine!

Great, quick hike with 3 trails to get up. I took the 4WD track. It was less crowded, which I appreciate in a hike.

Hiked the short loop (the “red track”, Redwood Memorial Grove). It was only 1.2 miles, ~30 minutes. Beautiful trail. Easy for all levels.

Lovely walk. I would recommend it. If heading out to the falls, take bathers for a refreshing dip (water is quite chilly eve on a very hot day).

Nice simple walk. Would be better at the waterfall in non peak time as there was lots of people but still pleasant

Great views, excellent for visitors.

Truly lovely walk. Would definitely do it again.

Had a pleasant summer afternoon hike here with the extended family. The hike was up and down with nothing too strenuous. A bit muddy in places. In the first 2km placards denoted some of the native bush. With the recent rains the waterfall was in full force. There was a swimming hole below the falls for those bold enough to brave the cold water. On the way back we saw a massive Rimu tree in the Eastern side of the loop trail.

Very nice mountain. Not too hard and not too easy. Perfect for for training. Steep in parts but the view from the summit is worth the effort!

Awesome walk. As noted in other reviews check the tides as you come off the track onto otarawairere beach and access can be blocked by the tides. Definitely take your camera.

Great for a hike up and down the mount or round if you don’t fancy climbing! Plenty of routes to choose but always busy.

There is an entrance fee of NZ$37.50 per adult for the hike. I repeat. You have to pay to hike. Screw that.

Being from the midwest of The United States, this trail WAS challenging. A LOT of stairs. However, it was NON STOP beautiful sights! I highly recommend for tourists who want to see beautiful geothermal sights & sounds! Worth every step!

Great hike. We went up after the rains so a lot of water coming down the trail in places but that made it fun. The view from the trig station is awesome. Hung out up there for around 30 minutes and snacked, then made our way back down. Overall a fairly easy hike.

5 stars for the absolute beauty of this trail. We came off a cruise ship and were able to walk right to the trailhead a few hundred meters away from the dock. Go early if you are there during the hot season because there will be more people on the trail as the day progresses. It was very hot on the day we did this and were so glad we brought water and were well covered. Gorgeous!

Strenuous! Take water on a hot day, the views are amazing and the top is an awesome vantage point.
