“It's SUPER STEEP but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Recommended by the lady at the information center, she had insisted it was steep (we shrugged it off and were like meh, we're young, we can do it?!) but we took for granted how steep this incline actually was! I stopped several times, which was probably in my favour to fully appreciate the views along the way. We passed several elderly people coming back down the track which was reason enough to keep going and remain motivated! The view is amazing, do it. Picturesque!

“Best view in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

It's quite a hike to the top but SO worth it for the view. AT one point I thought I was never going to get there but once we did it was amazing. There a re a couple of benches up there to sit on and gaze out over Arrowtown. I wish we had taken a picnic but it made the coffee taste even better once we came back down to town. Highly recommend this walk.

“Great for a brisk walk and workout - great views from the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

One of the best known walks in Arrowtown. Reasonably steep gradient near the top - recommend taking the time to try.

“A nice walk with views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a nice walk, about an hour long. It slowly ascends the hill behind Arrowtown and you are rewarded with lovely views.
