It's an easy way to spend about 90 mins and get some good exercise. The trail is well laid out and easy to follow. We went on a cool day which was best for walking. At the top there are great views all round.

Recommend walking towards Puzzling World and then get the view of the Lake for the descent. Beautiful view and lots of useful information at the top of the hill.

It was a bit of a climb for my youngest daughter, but getting to the top and taking in the views was worth the effort. I expected to find a sign on the road out of Wanaka to show me the start of the walk, but there was nothing obvious. Watch out for the gravel car park just before Puzzling World.

A relatively easy walk that has a couple of steepish parts. Well worth the 30 or so minutes it takes to get to the top because the 360 degree view is amazing
