“Classic walk in Hanmer...”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Walked it as kids, and still walking it now. It's not amazing, never will be, but it's a pleasant walk up on a sunny day. Please stick to the track...

“A great way to spend some time in Hanmer. Amazing views.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Whilst this is a steep uphill walk the views are rewarding when you ger to the top. A reasonable, well formed track takes you through the forest affording great views over Hanmer Springs and mbeyond as you climb the hill, and views in the opposite direction from an excellent viewing area when you reach the top. You would need a reasonable level of fitness as this is uphill, but assuming you are up to it the views make it definitely worth the climb.

“Get up higher for the views”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is definitely a must do when in Hanmer Springs. Its a relatively easy walk up through nice bush. Take it quietly if you are not super fit, you will enjoy the views.
