Amazing track, with forest and mountains. The track is not signed, you have to take the Devil's Pounchbowl track then go right upstair, on the sign "Aicken track". The track stop as indicated on this review with a beautiful landscape, but you can go up until the summit. Maybe 3 more km out & back, very hard and proper mountain, you have to create your own way, reward with a awesome 360 view at the top ! I needed 4h30 from the carpark to the summit, way back, but i'm a fast hiker, probably pretty much 6h out & back.

Nice stair workout going uphill, beautiful views from the waterfall.

Short and steep but worth it

Steep but great walk with awesome views

Lots of steps

Did this in reverse. I can see we took the harder way, quite a steep climb up the back end of the mountain. Fantastic views at the top. Take care with the weather as its known to be windy/cold up there.

The stairs were brutal but the view was worth it. Did it back in February!

Nice short walk..good escape from the city ..

Stunning Sean. Great if you like boulder jumping, we where with to boys 10 and 12 who loved it. You hear and see Avalanches this time of year.

Way to busy. It snowed in the night before we did the walk and even then it feld like a trafficjam. Seenery is great.

Great track - very steep but well worth the views at the top. Loose gravel made it slippery on the way down.

Well traveled path. VERY steep, did not feel the steepness going up as mush as I did going down, couple of loose gravel close call slips. The view from the top is worth it.

Nice, easy hike to some secluded little beaches. Great views and lots of wildflowers!

nice and peaceful with amazing views
Just a little bit same same. I like more variety so 4km of sheep tracks was more than enough bit would highly recommend for families

good day hike for fam & kids

The trail is well groomed and the track is smooth. If you are fairly fit this will be very easy.

Lot of stairs to climb but worth to do it.

Steep climb but great views from the top

Hard work to start, but the views are amazing! It's not 16 km. Doc says 2 hours up.

Might not be a winter track. Very muddy and needs maintenance. Be fine in summer when it’s dried out.

Amazing scenery especially on a clear day. Easy track as most of the ground is flat.

This map needs to be updated. This is no longer a loop and it is unsafe to get right up to the cave. Looking towards the cave the right hand part of the “loop” is closed due to earthquake damage. Left hand half is fine. However it is best to turn left towards Summit Road rather than attempt to get to the cave.

Stunning scenery.

this is not a kid friendly track at the moment, it has obviously had no repairs since the earthquake and the right side of the loop is closed...not that we saw that till we got to the end having nearing broken my ankle several times. I would highly recommend not doing this track after any rain.
