We climbed in the morning when it was cooler; the walk took us about 2 hours return and was very enjoyable. It was very quiet, we met one couple on our ascent. The view from the top are well worth the effort of the climb,...More

This steep trail is quite the cardiovascular workout for the average Joe! That being said, if you're in shape and don't mind the workout, the views at the top are gorgeous!

I loved this hike. It gives you a panoramic view of the North Island, Mountains and ocean. It is not that challenging, but it is a bit of a climb so you do want to be in shape.

This hike can be done in a wonderful circuit around South Chinese Mtn. I suggest counterclockwise but could be done clockwise as well. Remember to sign in at the parking lot - there is a book and pen in a ziplock. From there it was...More

We did the trail on a rainy day and still had a bit of a view between the clouds. Easy hike for a great view. Fun to spend time at the top exploring. We went back down the same way we came up.

Went up in rain and fog but during the day it cleared. The rocks are slippery on a wet day so travel with caution. Well marked trail,

It is a little up hill, but you will be at the top of Chinese Mountain in about an hour. Wear water proof shoes. The view is so beautiful:) Take a lunch to eat at the top. After lunch, you will be down in no...More

Lovely quiet walk, not the easiest of walks, as quite steep with lots of rocks and stones. (Make sure you have the correct walking shoes). It was well worth the visit, the scenery is stunning.

We hiked up the South Chinese Mountains and then went across to the North Chinese mountains before hiking down. The views from the top (particularly the South side) are amazing - you can see for miles and have a great view of Quadra Island and...More
