Easy walk to and from the car park. Best views of the entire walk are from the hill at the start, but do not try go down the other way as it is too steep. Beautiful views at the end

This trail has some great views. Especially at the peak. While most of the trail is moderate, near the peak it is very steep and I would consider it difficult. We did it on an 85 degree Fahrenheit day and I would recommend carrying plenty of water.

Nice track with good coastal views. Easy enough to do in two days but three days allows you to stay at Flea Bay which is lovely, despite the name.

I combined this with the stone bay peak. If you want the to reach the summit easy, take a right and the shortcut. If you want a challenge, take a left and follow the markings for the summit.

We did a portion of this track off cruiseship. What a beautiful hike rewarding us with peace, quiet and awesome views. Check online to find where you start out from Akaroa, or stop in at the i-site which is nearby.
