I was staying in town and it was about a 30 minute walk to the summit. Very easy to find my way. It was cloudy and sprinkling when I got to the top, but the views were good.

You can drive up to the summit, or walk/bike up for exercise. It's free and the view of the city from the top is spectacular all around. Definitely worth it!!

This is a great place to visit to get a panoramic view of Auckland. I visited in November 2013. It's a worthwhile hike to the top. Best of all, it is free to visit. The road and hiking paths are well maintained. The crater is considered sacred, so you should keep out.

In November lots of teenagers seem to set off lots of fireworks. There was a fair bit of this litter in the park when I visited

Mt Eden is a good place to view Auckland CBD greater surounds with elevated green views. Highlight is the very large crater and the ability to walk around it (you should not enter as it is considered sacred).

If you're short on time, you can even just drive around to the top and then have a look at the bottom of the crater.

Very limited shade up top but easy to walk all the way up and back down if you have time to spare.

Mt Eden is stunning- the view is excellent and the hike up is fairly easy with many points to stop and take some great photos. And better than that its all free! Who doesn't love a free outing. It is a must do for Auckland as lots of the cultural heritage of NZ is linked into the mountains.
