Leg burner and heart pumper. Especially if you go up the track clockwise. Amazing views along the way and at the top.

Well paved tracks A lot of reward for not a ton of hard work, if you’re looking for a lighter summit hike. Many trails, many options..a lot of signage I didnt realize that this specific track takes you the long way around, it bring you to down to Pilot Bay Beach and back around (at least on the map) If you just stick to the “loop” signs you have the choice of avoiding all that Either way, great views, spectacular colors, walking amongst sheep with a chance to see some seals along the coast apparently

I prefer the longer route because of the views. If you do not want to go up the Mount, around the Mount is a good, beautiful and easier alternative.

Good trail with nice views, it is paved and steep going up the mountain. In some spots it’s easy to slip as part of the paved path is coming away. Overall good quick hike, worth wearing active clothing since it will be a bit of a work out to get up the mountain.

Lovely walk, lots of trails to follow, quite a few steps up to the top but rewarding walk with stunning views from the top. 30-40 minutes each way all uphill so some fitness required.

Awesome views. Good hard ascent. Suggest do the hill first and relax around the base

Parking can be difficult. Better to just park along the beach and walk in. Really cool views most of the way up. Sheep, cool trees, the ocean, tons of reasons to do the hike if in Tauranga.

Takes 45 to 60 mins. Must do! The prettiest view I have ever seen! Walk along the top and see a 360° view. Recommend doing day and sunrise and sunset.

Easily accessible, plenty of parking nearby or in the township. Moderate and steady climb, but very achievable. Good views from the top, as featured in most people's Facebook photos.

Easy hike, great view! Very accessible, close to the city therefore also a bit crowded.
