Yes, it’s uphill! But the view is worth it , round trip is just over an hour at a steady walk... if you’re a mountain goat you’ll be faster !
The view is stunning, best to walk early morning to avoid boiling !

Thank hrhs

This is a shortish walk for those wanting to get decent views over Wanaka but out of the many walks that we've done in NZ this was not one of the highlights. In fact that are many in the Wanaka region that blow this one out of the park. For an easy one the Cluther River walk is very nice and for a long walk the Rob Roy Peak is amazing.

Okay so I got us a bit lost at the end of the walk. Trust the signage. Magnificent views from the top of Mt Iron. The track is doable with an average level of fitness, just take your time and drink plenty of water. Around 1.5 hours do complete the loop - time well spent

nice view of the city but yea that's it.
The walk isn't that good, quite steep and well not the best. Do Roy's Peak!
