  • This walk is 10 minutes almost straight up (101 steps), then about 20 minutes through sheep pasture, then 15 minutes *down* through a forest (338 steps), then another 10 minutes through grass to get to the sites. Obviously, reverse all of this to go back. There is a decent view point after going through the sheep pasture (about a half hour into the walk). The hole in the rock (almost at the end) is pretty interesting. Just be aware that it's almost 2 hours total to do the whole thing and quite a workout.
  • Good workout with rewarding views
  • Nice walk with nature view
  • Great walk and views.
  • Fantastic walk up through farmland and bush. Get a great view of the surrounding areas as well as a slice of some old native New Zealand forest. Can't wait to do it again one day!
