Iz and I stayed at the Top 10 Holiday Park and strolled up this track to catch a view of Picton. Strolled is not really the term to use. At times the track was treacherous due to greasy slippery clay-like mud underfoot threatening to pitch...More

What a great walk. Took about an hour+ to get to the trig point, and it was all uphill coming from Newgate Street ( near the Top Ten park entrance). It is really worth doing this walk as at the top there are incredible views...More

As the track guide says, be prepared for an incline right from the get go. However there's a bunch of strategically placed seats along the way, so you can rest if needed. And the view from the top is definitely worth it. My partner and...More

Took my fat bum about 50 mins with a 35lbs 3yo on my back. Several spots with good views, and then you'll know you're there at the top when the great view is all there in front of you!

This hike was good to run up for some good exercise. I recommend it--especially on a clear day when you can look down on Picton.

My wife and I are locals. We still enjoy the climb and the view. Even Bellbirds singing, and perching only 2 or 3 metres from us.

This is a great walk up through bush and opening up to wonderful views over Picton and out to Waikawa. We started our walk in Newgate St and came back the same way. Took us about 40 mins up and 25-30 mins back down ....More

The trail leads to some awesome views of the harbor but be prepared, it is quite a hike to the top. We did the trail on a misty day so the trail was wet and a bit precarious at times but still an enjoyable hike.
