I prefer it's original name of Mt Egmont but anyway the views on a clear day are excellent, good displays at the Mountain House, good walking tracks, but please all visistors, the weather changes quick so be prepared for the worst if tramping.

“Mt Taranaki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Great place to view a volcano in New Zealand.
Lots of bush walks and the North Egmont visitor centre is worth a visit.
