Short and quick little hike that is straight up. Great vistas of New Plymouth and the Tasman Sea.
The entire hike is stairs and an ascending rock scramble that uses metal chains for stability. So be physically prepared for a short but aggressive ascent.

Took 10 minutes to climb up. Nice views at the top of New Plymouth, Mt. Taranaki, and the Tasman Sea.

Nice walk; not very challenging but nice environment...definitely wouldn't do it in flip flops though unless you want to get your feet ripped up on the gravel and high potential to slide in the muddy sections...we walked it in winter....

Great walk. Great track. Gorgeous views. Very much recommended.

Great track to walk/run. I went to TOPEC and did their rogaine course they set up. No way it should be difficult. Loved it

Good view of the 'naki!

No way this should be difficult. I did it in flip flops after church one morning.

Beautiful track with sporadic scenic views of Mount Taranaki and Lake Manhamahoe. There is a Redwood Forest hiding on this track as well! Nice picnic areas at the beginning and end. I followed upper track and ended up walking the main road at the end.

Steep climb with the top requiring you to scramble across rocks. Fun for the adventure driven walker! Short trip to the top with a breathtaking view.
