Enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the Canterbury Plains, Banks Peninsula and the Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana from Mt Thomas (1023 m). From the picnic area follow Summit Track up a steep ridge to the summit of Mt Thomas. Come back the same way or return to the car park via either Wooded Gully or Ridge Tracks.

Great views! Steep climb initially and can be a bit muddy when wet but definitely worth the effort!

Pretty awesome considering its a relatively short hike. Went up during the snow and came down in the dark with a headtorch, Epic!
