Amazing if you are up for a challenging hike! Come prepared & don’t underestimate the difficulty! Worth it all the way up even if you don’t summit

Nice trail, was very wet which made it slippery and muddy. Awesome day hike....I went on a very cloudy day. I'd imagine some epic views if it were clear.

Late May so I spent most of the day in the clouds with only a brief one minute view of the mountain from just above the viewing pond. I was very impressed by the level of work done on the trail to keep the native plants from being squashed and keep the hikers above the mud. Due to a landside the section on Holly Hut Track, between Jacob's Ladder and Kokowai Track is closed so be prepared to take the Kokowai Track down the mountain. It's in pretty rough shape, but manageable.

This is not near Inglewood. It is in Okato, 45mins from Inglewood.

Beautiful trail. Scenic and has some stairs. We were in cloud all the time and had a bit of rain. Unfortunately we didn’t see the mountain. Will be back to do the summit at a later date.

Beautiful hike with a little glimpse of a trickling waterfall at the end (depending which way you start). There are definitely some parts that are very over grown and depending on how wet it has been days before it can be reaaaally muddy. Fair warning it’s essentially downhill stairs for the first half and then climbing stairs up on the way back. (Similar to mount Tauhara in Taupo!)

This walk was amazing, unfortunately I went on a day with awful weather and didn't see much but it was a great challenge. Definitely possible to do it in a day, it took me 6hrs, although I was tired at the end! Would definitely recommend.

Would recommend starting this hike earlier in the day, and give yourself a safe 8 hours depending on your physical capability. Definitely a challenge — lots of scoria and bouldering especially at the last stretch of the trail to the peak. Incredible view though and 1000% worth the sweat and toil. One of my favorite hikes in NZ, and even caught a beautiful sunset on the way down too!

Amazing views. Just have to brace for the staurs. There are a lot of it. Best day walk after Tongariro Crossing. Less walkers which is good. The day can be very hot unlike Tongariro so prepare well.

Stairs, Scrambles, scree and steep concrete to tire you early. Please dont under estimate this hike. This is possibly New Zealands toughest day hike. I saw far too many people under prepared up there. Weather systems can appear really quickly and you won't have time to escape them. But it's well worth the view if you are fit enough to do it. Please respect local Mauri beliefs as the top is holy for them.

This is a very hard trail, start early and be prepared! Well worth it on a clear day!

Quite challenging with the steep stairs to begin, than sliding sand, after that climbing and eventually snow and ice. To go up there is one thing, but going down something else. Though the view is incredible! Outstanding! We could even see the southern Alps
