Great full day hike. Powell hut is closed at the moment

Enjoyable walk for the whole family

good track for the moderatley fit tramper. the gentle annie part is more well maintained.

Completed this circuit in a day with beautiful skies.

liked it a lot kids enjoyed it

Beautiful walk, easy (flat) walking for the whole family to enjoy! Bathrooms and bbqs at the park but generally no phone reception. Swimming spots and Lord of the Rings photo opportunities there too!

Easy walk

This is a great loop that we love to do to relax among the trees. I have vertigo so the 1st bridge is a bit difficult but OK. Nice accesses to the river and its stones beaches, possibility to bath in it. This is a nice and short walk.

This is one of my favorite local trails. Well maintained and easy to access. Went out yesterday after two days of constant rain, I was surprised how well drained the trail is. Apart from a few muddy spots between 3-4km part which is covered by trees, the rest of the trail was dry-ish. Great run. Reasonable flat with little elevation. In terms of shoes, normal road running shoe with decent cushioning should do the trick. As there are some rocky parts in the trail. Lightweight trail shoes preferred if you need the grip but not required.

awesome ride but very exposed. horrendously windy on the Featherston side of the summit. There is a part where they recommend cyclists get off and walk and we did.
Otherwise a great ride glad we have done it both ways. took about 3.5 hours return

Gorgeous trail. Very easy and scenic. Enjoyed it.

great trail rode this with the family yesterday. Rode from the Te Marua side to the summit and back down. 21km all up.

The incline suggests a steep walk but even though uphill all the way to Summit was a very achievable day walk. Loved it.

Great easy run. Awesome view and plenty of side tracks to add some extra distance.

Good mountain bike track. Did this with a company that picked us up from the other side which was helpful.

This is a great trail, bit of a climb up to the summit but defintely runnable. There are tunnels so take a head torch (or other light). Once at the top, it id downhill to the carpark.
