Great hike or climb. More than 1100 steps up, it’s well shaded. There's a beautiful little waterfall towards the bottom of the stairs. Great workout for a day. Trail is well maintained. The summit has a great view of the Waikato.

First timers walking the summit this morning. Started at 7am and was fairly busy with early morning runners and walkers. We had a rest at the half way point and then kept going. Struggled at around 1300 stairs but a lady kindly told me 84 to go!!! Was hard work but a lovely day to be in the bush and the best way to start the day. Going down a joy !!

RunningGreat!

Best sub-one hour running/climbing workout. Always plenty of people training on here. Keep an eye out for runners and etiquette is to give way to those going faster. Climb from waterfall to summit lookout is 1400 stairs there are ear-tag counters every 100 steps. If it isn’t hard enough for you pack a sugar bag with gravel from the pile at the entrance and carry it up - just leave it trackside wherever you want and the track guardians will spread it out

Stairs all the way is a work out, and it can get pretty mundane. But it is nice being in the shaded forest the entire time and views are good form the top. Can do up and down in about 1.25H.

This must be the stairway to heaven because there are enough of them to get you there. Solid view of the river from the lookout on top. Usually lots of people walking it.

Short bush walk until you reach the main waterfall then there is 1359 gut busting steps to the summit. One of my favourite local summits
