Mount Maunganui Summit Track, Mount Maunganui
(5/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Breathe in the fresh air and admire the amazing views of the Bay of Plenty on Mount Maunganui Summit Track. Rising up to 232 m (761 ft), this extinct volcanic cone was once used by the Maori as a natural fortification; today, locals and visitors alike flock here for a day in nature. Several tracks lead to the cone's summit, and depending on the one you choose, the hike to the top might take approximately 30 minutes to an hour. In general, the treks are not too difficult, but on a hot day it's important to properly protect yourself from the sun and bring sufficient water supplies, because there are no sources of drinking water on site.

  • Energetic walk with fabulous views as a reward. We did it in the pouring rain. Challenging but fun, in good weather far more enjoyable. 
  • Easy hike, even children can do it, and the views are really great from the top. It seems to be the local's spot for a quick trail run. 
  • A must when in tauranga. Great views and not to hard. Good parking at pilots bay and plenty of places to buy food to take on your adventure.
