“Excellent hike, great views.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The hike takes approximately two hours, zig zagging under the gondola up the mountain. No special equipment required, but decent footwear and protection from the elements is recommended as it is pretty exposed at the top.

Top tip: you can take the gondola down for free!

The gondola station at the top has a cafe and toilets. It also has a walkway to Sanson Peak (a further 15 minute walk), where you can see a mock up of the old Cosmic Ray Station.

You have to go here the views are outstanding to appreciate the views though you have to take the gondola ride up to the top there is a restaurant and a nice walk once you are up there,if you are lucky you might even see some goats up there we didn't though.

Reviewed October 16, 2012

Site worth the hike, make sure to wear good walking shoes and some warm clothes, maybe stick some gloves in your pocket, and do not forget your camera...some shots of a life time.
