I combined this with the stone bay peak. If you want the to reach the summit easy, take a right and the shortcut. If you want a challenge, take a left and follow the markings for the summit.

We did a portion of this track off cruiseship. What a beautiful hike rewarding us with peace, quiet and awesome views. Check online to find where you start out from Akaroa, or stop in at the i-site which is nearby.
