Distance: 10 km (6.2 miles) roundtrip. Duration: 4 hours. Elevation gain: 1,600 ft. Walking distance from town. Beautiful views of Dunedin Harbor, Southern Alps, and surrounding ridges.

From the car park, follow the trail as it begins to go uphill. The slope is fairly gradual at first. Once you enter the trees it begins to get steeper and continues to climb until you are above tree line. You then begin to get views of the city and the harbor, along with mountains in the far distance. Continue along the trail for another half hour to an hour until you reach the top.

There are two trailheads for the track. The second is at Flagstaff-Whare Flat Road: 45°50'04.2"S 170°27'04.3”E.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
