Great hike or climb. More than 1100 steps up, it’s well shaded. There's a beautiful little waterfall towards the bottom of the stairs. Great workout for a day. Trail is well maintained. The summit has a great view of the Waikato. Show more

Length: 5.7 mi • Est. 3 h 30 m
This loop combines several tracks into a single hike. It traverses the Scottsman Gully, then a portion of the Crown Trail followed by a direct ascent to the top of Karangahake Summit. The return is via the Mountain Summit Trail that then connects back to Crown returning the same way it started. There is plenty of parking at the Karangahake Gorge swing bridge, but it can get pretty busy during the holiday season. Additional parking is available off Crown Hill Road. But if you park there it shortens the hike to exclude Scottsman Gully; which would be a miss as that portion of the trail is beautiful with cascading waters from a stream that empties into the Ohinemuri River. Most of the trail is graded and wide. The only section that is a footpath and somewhat narrow, but definitely steep is the 0.7 mile section starting clockwise for the loop. It is a constant climb and will test your cardio. At the top the views are magnificent. As far as the eyes can see towards the Coromandel and Kaimai. The plains are vast and never ending - yet the ocean is visible in the distance. The return loop is an easy downhill walk on a wide graded path. There are a few small stream crossings depending on the rain, and keep a look out for the occasional mining tunnel. This is a great alternative to the gorge walks which can get very busy at times.
