“Nice but steep walk through forest.”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Great view in every direction, camera a must. Covered lookout at the top, but sadly in poor repair. A picnic table is available but the wasps were too much of a nuisance when we were there.

“Wonderful views”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We thought that this was just going to be a view over the town, but actually we could see all the way to the surrounding mountains and there was a nice pointer naming them . It was easy for the kids, with lovely colourfull toadstools and nice forest all the way up to the view. There are nice little seats to stop and rest and take in the view at each main turn in the track. Not too far from town for a quick walk up in the morning.

“good exercise”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

disliked running up it... liked resting at the top... what a great workout walking or running and the views at the top make it worth it. Take a camera with a panoramic stitch; you'll need it!

“An enjoyable climb”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

A reasonably easy climb (I managed it in jandles), which takes about 30 minutes to reach the summit at a steady pace. Not too steep, and all in the shade of the trees. Stop points all the way up to admire the view and catch your breath. Great view from the top, and a lovely way to spend an hour and escape the crowds down in the township.

“Fantastic view - worth the walk”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Yes, this is a fairly long walk up hill, but it's good exercise (all in the shade), and the view at the top is fabulous. Well worth the effort if you are in Hanmer.
