Beautiful hike with the trees blazing their autumn colours. Be sure to take in the 10 minute steep detour up German Hill and recline in the memorial bench that is located halfway up. I have done this hike twice now and counterclockwise was absolutely superior.

The effort to view ratio on this trail is super nice!! Amazing scenery for a 2 hour relatively easy hike.

Lovely hike...even with 5yrs old! A bit of an adventure to cross the little streams of water! Great views from the top of the mountain

Very enjoyable loop from Arrowtown. A lot of picturesque locations from the creek in the gully - to wide open 360 degree views from a small summit including Lake Hayes.

What a great trail. Starts along the river out of Arrowtown and then breaks off left for a bit of a steep uphill. Some stream crossings and awesome scenery finishes with beautiful view from the top. Had it to ourselves for a nice lunch. Ate some wild strawberries and had a swim in the river on the way back to the car. Amazing day. Huge fans of the Arrowtown area.
