You climb straight up and it is quite a haul but only for a short time and then the amazing view of the harbour. Worth it!

Nice and clear hiking track with a lot of stairs. No problem to find the way. You can walk up and down much faster if needed.

Stunning view, worth the climb, extensive birdlife. Bit of a hike up there however the track is great and there are also built steps part of the way. Great variety of birdlife. Can also do the walk if it is raining lightly as are under cover of canopy for much of the walk. A must do for the scenery.

This is a good climb to the top with many steps that save a scramble. Indigenous forest and kiwi country so use the Shoe scrubbers and spray before you walk through the gate.

This trail is lovely and ends at a great overlook with excellent views but don't under estimate how steep this is.
