it is about 500mtrs high and you can get a nice scenic view of the lake. However, if you are on limited time i suggest you skip it and enjoy the same view from another easier to access point.

I am an older gentleman and so the thought of walking up this quite steep track was a little daunting at first, but it was well worth the effort. There were many places to stop on the way and the locals were very helpful and supportive.

The views from the top totally justified the effort and I would do this again when next in Wanaka.

Track is not easy but totally worth it. Any fitness level could do this, just take your time. Views are incredible.

Great views, well worth the 1 1/2hr round trip. Take water, hat and of course good walking shoes. ..............................

It’s just over 500 meters high, but she is a bit of a steep climb to get to the top. There are benches on the way up to pull up, when needed. The top gives you a good view over Wanaka town, and Lake Wanaka.
