It was not quite what I was expecting, the bush was really thick and the bugs were swarming us the whole time. It probably would have been fine, but we had our 8 month old baby strapped on and she was unhappy about it. We ended up turning around mid way and coming back. Would have been cool to make it to the top, but it just wasn’t the Hike for us

Good view of the 'naki!

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

Gorgeous, highly recommend.

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.
