Great walk through amazing rainforest and later get a stunning view at Franz Josef glacier - much better than helicopter tours and cheaper ;)
Sometimes it gets very steep but on average the quality of the way is perfectly fine. (Careful can be slippery)

Harder than the Tongariro Crossing in my opinion as its uphill constantly and quite steep near the top. Coming down wasn't too bad though. Take plenty of water.

Guess it would be nice view if it wasn't so cloudy. Start early so you can see the view. It's steep all the way but nice paths.
