Sentier dégagé tout du long avec une jolie sur la ville, beaucoup de vent et 1 fontaine a eau au sommet. Ca grimpe sec tout du long. Sympa comme balade

Heaps of stairs but worth

Gorgeous views! Steep hike straight up the ridge, very windy, but well worth it. A good workout and rewarding views. There’s a water station at the top.

Currently a few trees down, but no major problems.

Very steep and slippery at places. Wear grippy shoes. Great workout.

Enter the hike from the right side in anti-clockwise. And it's a good shaded climb. At the moment, the left side is closed. The top track is no accessible with over grown blocking the path. No possible to go further than the loop.

Plenty of steps to get the heart rate up. High intensity lower duration type hike. Starts off with multiple steps and transitions to a semi scramble to the top over tree roots etc. Can get muddier on the top half during wetter seasons

Great wee walk. Just over an hour at a medium pace

I done this one just yesterday, it offered amazing photo content & was just so peaceful!

Great wee walk up into the hills over looking Blenheim. Track is a bit washed out from recent heavy rain so probably wouldn't walk it in Jandals :)

Did this trail clockwise on solo (highly recommend going in pairs or more), the climb was easy, just be mindful of loose rocks. The trail going down from the quarry peak is full of thorny plants, be prepared to be scratched and pricked, this a very steep trail and you might have to slide on your bum. It was a fun trail overall with breathtaking views! Stick to the trail!

Lovly, easy, but good cardiovascular walk.

Highly recommend the extreme incline to start with...I dont want to imagine walking down this hill. it's about 2km of sun-soaked rock face that gets to a 50° angle in spots, but rewards with incredible views of the Hutt Valley. It's often said "you cant beat a good day in Wellington"....and today was exactly that... will definitely do this trail again!

half of the track is closed for maintenance, can only get to the view point

easy walk, good for people working on their fitness

The main trail to the lookout is good and well maintained. However the offshoot from the main loop to the rest of the track is badly maintained and overgrown with head hight gorse and grass. We forced our way through for around 800m to see if it improved but it didn't get better so we turned around. Also lots of people who think that dogs on a lead doesn't apply to their dog.

Two hours of a well-marked round trip from the main gate parking lot. Fairly strenuous way up, followed by a nice relaxing narrow path down through the forest. Great photo ops at the peak, and nice relaxing solitude in the forest.
