(900+ reviews on the web)
Volcano
One of the many small, dormant volcanic cones that lie through the city, One Tree Hill (Maungakiekie) features an urban park with giant trees, wide avenues, plenty of trails to explore, and a viewing platform on the top of the hill. Visit the astronomical observatory or wander around looking at the sheep and cattle. Walk up to the top to see the grave of Sir John Logan Campbell, marked by an obelisk facing a bronze statue of a Māori warrior. At the information center learn about the geologic and human history of the hill through interactive exhibits, and pick up maps for the volcanic and archeological trails. No camping is allowed on site, but you can bring along a snack and choose a picnic spot or use one of the many free barbecue sets.
