One of the best

I love all the trails up here. If you choose to drive up, use caution.

Nice quick stop

Short and busy but beautiful!


Went of a misty winter morning, and the only other person there was playing a flute up at the top while we walked around. Magical!

It's beautiful, but there are so many beautiful beaches around, so why bother with the crowds.

Bring A Good Car

Love love love the trail up here, and love the family friendly huts lower down. It's a steep drive up though, and can be quite rutted after the winter. I have no idea what I would've done if I'd met someone coming the other way. Our old van overheated at the very end of the drive, so bring a healthy vehicle with you.

Just Do It

Hands down my favourite day tramp in NZ. The last little bit is super exposed, so be careful of the winds up there. If you're lucky you'll get a nice view of Ngaroto too!
