The walk up is step but worth it. A hot tip when doing this track is to do it anti clockwise. The view over Wanaka coming down the hill is a lot more spectacular.

So glad we did the Mount Iron walk. However it was tough work in some spots, fairly steep sometimes! Maybe I just need to work on my fitness ;) Worth it for the views at the top. Good way to spend a morning.

There are 2 caches right at the mountain. And if you don't know what I'm talking about it's time you discovered geocaching. do a search. The mountain itself is a nice place to visit. Not too strenuous to climb... about an hour, leisurely, and the views from the top make it worthwhile.

Takes about 45 minutes to reach the top at medium pace. Take an anticlockwise loop circuit and enjoy the surrounding views. The walk down is less steep this way.

Access to the track is very close to town. This is an easy walk or jog to the top (about 25min walk). Great place for photo's of the Wanaka area
