Lots of steps but nice view.
Track well maintained. Predator control very good. Superb greenery and bush.
Pretty hard to go up, because there are many stairs, but worth it.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
It is a pretty easy hike up to the top with a well maintained path, mostly stairs thought - so plan to still sweat a bit. Takes about one hour to get up but you are rewarded with a great view!! Do not forget to look for some geocaches at the top - one of the best I have done!!
Steep 40 minute climb up Mount Manaia - rewarded by absolutely magnificent views over the various bays at Whangarei Heads.
Nice track and free.
Nice view, good facilities.
This track is a great uphill hike which will take you around 1 1/2 hour in total. There is a fantastic viewpoint about 2/3 of the way up where you can take a well earned rest. The track itself is nice and wide and gravelled all the way up - incl a fair few stepways onthe way. Steps a nice and wide so not hard on the knees coming down! When you get right to the top climb on the big volcanic rock for a huge 360 view as far as you can see.
Spectacular 360degree views of Northland. Steep.
