good walk

Be careful on the rocks near busby. Also, there is some loose rocks/gravel. Don't wipe out like I did.

Very nice hiking track with hundreds of stairs, did with wife and 2.5yr son.

The drive here from Auckland took almost 3 times longer than the hike. Beautifully maintained trail with many steps. Its uphill all the way, equivalent to almost climbing 100 floors. Great views,too!
Should be rated as Easy/Moderate if you only do the official track. Difficult if you try and climb up one of the pinnacles ( not advisable).

Great walk, beauty views. Smugglers cove is perfect for a chill.

Fun short hike. Great views.

A hard hike up the top but views are worth it by far

Beautiful walk which is easy enough for kids to do

Beautiful hike with stunning views! We are relatively experienced hikers and completed the track in exactly 1.5 hours, as is what the sign indicating the start of the track says. I reckon the distance is more towards 6km than the 8.2km in the description.
