“Short and stiff uphill walk.”
Review of Conical Hill

Worth the effort for a stunning view over Hanmer Springs and good exercise before lunch. A twisty winding climb best done as a circular route starting off along the forest pathway.

The Conical Hill walkway takes you up to the top of Conical Hill in about 25 minutes. The walk isn't exactly difficult, but it is mostly uphill, so you should be in reasonable shape. Once up, you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surroundings.

We always walk up Conical hill during our stays at Hanmer.
The first stage of the walks steep but then zig zags gently
Recommend the walk on a low cloud day as sometimes you can look down onto the thick clouds and see the hills and peaks of the surrounding vistas.
Hiking boots are not reqd but shoes and socks may get wet in the mornings.Wehave pushed prams up there , gets the blood pumping btw.

Great little walk, though quite steep in places. Well worth the hike as the views at the top are really stunning and there is an informative plaque showing you all the nearby mountains.

Walk through the forest so lots of shade. Just take your time. No view until you get to the top. Can be windy at the top.
