Have done this walk quite a few times and still love doing it and with a beautiful day we set off and with a much steeper option available or the easier one(it is still quite steep) you still have to be reasonably fit though and just take your time and take some water with you and you will get there.
It is sure worth it when you get to the top, so sit down take in the fantastic views and then when you get back down call into one of the coffee shops for a drink and something to eat.

Great track, shame that the nicer track has been closed due to the storms, you have to be relatively fit for this track, wouldn't recommend it for someone with heart conditions! The views on clear days are fantastic!

The summit walk is much better than the circuit walk. Beware all those fitness freaks who run past both going up and coming back down. The views at the top are amazing. It's only a short distance to the Mount's cafes when you return to the bottom.

There is a moderate track and a steep track, as well as a track that goes around the bottom of the Mount. Footing can be diffficult on all three, but the views are worth it.

The steps way is the quickest but a killer on unfit legs. The 4wd track is longer but has plenty of rest stops to take in the views.
