Did it in two parts on separate days combining other Te Mata Peak walks to complete the loop on each day. A really nice track with lots of interesting variations in the path and views. This recording includes part of the Giant Circuit walk.

Loved this hike! The bird life is phenomenal. Walked in with my husband, 12yr old and 4yr old. The first part of the track to the lake is really wide and well maintained with seats to sit and rest or appreciate your surroundings! Stayed in the hut for a couple of nights, thoroughly enjoyed this hike, one of my favourites and the lake is beautiful.

Hiked up a steep switchback from a farm on the south side of Te Mata. Views at the top are expansive, and the hike up takes you past some large flocks of sheep tucked into the side of the mountain.
