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.

Very nice walk over the beach at low tide below a cliff. The birds colony is nice to see but the views are worth the walk in its own!

Ascended long up from Onepoto slow and steady with tree roots being the pathway’s staircase. Beautiful old trees and stunning lake views. Panikere Hut first night. Viewed Sunrise from the approach stairs. Easy walk next day to Waiopaoa Hut so left packs there and visited Korokoko waterfalls as wouldn’t have enough Time our last day because got picked up by water taxi at 3 from Mauititi Hut. 4th day we would have completed but not enough time. Lots of very steep path and steps going other way from Waiopoa Hut to Panikere so kind of pleased started at Onepoto. Extremely beautiful walk and great huts.

Did this over three days, missing the ascent due to three 6 yr olds in our group. Had a fantastic time, the scenery is incredible. One of the kids caught a decent sized trout just with a spinning rod while we were having a rest. Plenty of wildlife. The huts we stayed in were great...in fact one of them was more like a lodge! One of NZ's great walks!

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.

Lovely short hike to a beautiful waterfall. Easy walk for kids, and a great place for a swim.

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.
