We were lucky enough to strike a fabulous day for our walk up Conical Hill. Even though there had been considerable rain in the days previous, the track was still suitable for walking on with trainers. The views were stunning. It really is worth the...More

We walked up Conical Hill and down through Majuba walk. The track is well maintained and the views from the top are amazing. It’s a relatively easy walk (the hardest part is the end of the street before you begin the walk) although it is...More

You don't need to be super fit to walk this track. It's about a 60 minute return trip. Although parts of the track can be steep it is not a hard walk and would be suitable for the whole family. It is a wide track...More

I walk up this hill every trip to Hanmer Springs. It's an easy 20min walk each way up the hill for amazing views over Hanmer. Always good to do before a soak at the hot pools.

Lovely walk through the bush to the top, nice easy walk for the whole family, good quality wide track. Walk to the top have a picnic lunch overlooking Hanmer. A highlight of my trip to Hamner and its free. Don't forget your camera.

The hike is fairly easy with all of the switchbacks although there are “shortcuts” through the trail that are more strenuous if you so choose. The views at the top on a sunny day are unmatched for such an easy walk.
