Mount Maunganui Summit Track, Mount Maunganui

#1 of 22 in Trails in Bay of Plenty Region
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.

  • Despite the fact that this beach city and airy that one wants to spend all day on the beach, napping in the mount can not to pass up the opportunity to upload it to see its beautiful views and landscapes! It is advisable to perform it with comfortable shoes because that is an accessible ride at times their stairs and climbs demanding (but anything not worth) become a little. No doubt the moment of the day so that it is near sunset for such see the time of day on a postcard really dreamed. On the one hand up and down on the other which offers completely different views. In the part of the descent there is precious benches which are ideal to sit and watch the sunset! You don't need to see it from the point above, generally having more people... To upload it! You will not regret,!
