This is a short walk when compared to others in the area. It is well worth the effort and on a fine day you can see the various lakes in the area, up the Cadrona valley and out towards Treble Cone.

We enjoyed this walk and joined many locals on this popular walk on a lovely warm Sunday morning. Lots of people walk their dog up to the top. Good views and a good track.

Walked this track on my last morning in Wanaka. Beautiful views of the Cardrona Vally and of Wanaka. Walk up the back way is my tip so you can walk down looking at the view. Perfect spot for mums ashes - special place.

if you like a hilly run this is perfect, about a mile from the lake, then go around the backside to climb, nothing too steep but a few sections that are rocky and maybe need to walk, overall about an hour return (for a fit...More

Hi, As in the previous answer - go out of Wanaka and park up on the left hand side of the road - no problems re parking. Go through the gate which is marked - towards the signed trail. You can go up one side and down the... More
