To get to the start of the walk head out of Taupo on State Highway 5 towards Napier, go through the new roundabout and turn in about 3 k’s off at Mountain Road on your left hand side. The views are spectacular and well worth the hard slog. Doing the first part over the farmland is not so exciting but once up into the bush there are some great sections.

Needs maintenance, if a lot of rain it would be very easy to slip down a steep bank

Awesome views from the top, well worth the trek up!! Some of the track is fairly rugged and overgrown, but easy enough to get through! Take plenty of water and a packed lunch to enjoy the views!

Really nice hike in the beautiful woods of the vulcano until you get to the top with the breathtaking view! I would really recommend this hike!

Moderately challenging, but with breathtaking views at the top. On a clear day, you can see Tongariro National Park and it's volcanoes one way, and turning around you can see all the way back to white island.
