This trail was a great alternative to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, which we weren't able to do due to weather. The trail itself was in good condition and lined with markers along the way, and with the exception of the last push to the upper lake, the elevation gains were moderate and manageable. The trail up to the upper lake was quite loose, so use care when descending. Overall, a very enjoyable hike.

Superb hike with the Ngauruhoe volcano in focus.Great landscapes, a very well laid out trail to the Lower Lake the climb to upper lake is steep and steep but the view at the top is worth the effort.

Very cool if you're into volcanic geology. It is a bit long and dull in spots, but absolutely worthwhile.

70% of the trail was pretty flat. The view was fantastic. A bit boring on the way back.
