Would love to know how all trails rates these. I would 100% rate this as difficult. However the trail itself is very well maintained (careful of cow paddy’s and sheep turds, but you are walking through their home). I knew it would be uphill the entire way through research. We did a sunrise hike starting at 4am, getting to the top in just shy of 3 hours. The clouds rolled in pretty thick so we couldn’t see Wanaka and the lake, but the sunrise was beautiful along with the mountains all around. It is a fairly boring walk up but the view up top is worth it!
