“Panoramic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

You can see forever in all directions. A little steep for elderly but OK for fit under 70's. Spectacular views.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

A relatively easy walking track of about 30 mins uphill gets you to the summit of Mt Iron which on a clear day gives you fantastic views over the region. You can take a different route back down the other side too.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

We walked Mount Iron and were passed by many locals given it appears this somewhat challenging walk is the local fitness route. There are great mountain and lake views from the top.

“A fantastic short walk, breathtaking views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

This short walk, on a sunny day, will give you some of your very best NZ photos. It's a loop track - start from the right (this way the view will unfold in front of you as you reach the top and you'll have it in front of your eyes all the way down. If you start from the left, the view will be behind your back, so you'll have to keep turning around).
