Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

20min moderate hike to a rocky outcrop where you are afforded a 360 degree view of the surrounding Franklin Valley including the Collingwood River & Frenchman's Cap. Well worth the effort for the stunning views.

! Not terrible... but not in Hamilton. Location is incorrect. This is possibly Clyde's Hill above the cemetery. I asked a Donaghy and she said it isn't Donaghys Hill... that's another brilliant walk 1.45 hour drive away.

I arrived early for enjoy this 40 minute return walk, but did not get too far due to heavy fog.

Perhaps later morning when the heat of the day disapates would have been better planning

I wouldn't say it's an "easy" walk, but it's not horrible either. To me "easy" is handicap accessible. It's worth the climb, but don't go in thinking it's flat or paved the whole way. There is a lovely section that's in the shaded rainforest which is pleasant in the summery.

We have driven past here many times over the years and never stopped! But so glad we did. You walk up through the forest to an amazing lookout with 360 views. Stunning. Do it!

The car park for this walk is about 26km from Derwent Bridge. There are no facilities just a car park. It starts off on a wide path but narrows along the way. The track is very boggy in parts and has steps. There are also steep sections. The 360 degree views from the viewing platform made it worth while.

Definitely stop here on your travels between Queenstown and Derwent Bridge (or vice versa)! The walk up is beautiful and gradually graded and then it just opens up to this beautiful walkway and viewing platform with the most spectacular 360 views of majestic hills and rivers, just beautiful! Well worth the 40 minute stop after driving through windy hills!

Short and sharp - the track climbs quite a few metres but is well made (steps and boards) heading along the ridgeline to the top of Donaghys Hill. From there you have 360 degree views of the much bigger peaks including Frenchmans Cap (and can look down at the Franklin River).

It is a tiring 20 minute uphill hike on wet slippery boards / trail to get to the top of a mountain for views of the surrounding tree covered mountains. There is a lot of wind at the top.

Another of the 60 great short walks this takes you initially up an old service road, before branching off up the hillside, through trees and out onto a raised viewpoint overlooking a valley and river. It was raining the day we did this so the views were perhaps not as great as they could have been.

Involves a continuous uphill walk with some steps on the way there. Good to stretch the legs as you drive along the Lyell highway.
