Around five hours return, not suitable for young kids. Very steep at the end. Magnificent view - 360 degrees.

Just under 1000m - straight up but worth the amazing views. Book a private hot pool when you return - amazing.

Tough going uphill forest hike. Forest all the way but worth the 360 views at the top.

About 4.5 hours of trekking/tramping but when you climb about 1000m and you arrive at the top it is really amazing.

Easy 90mins uphill walk. Amazing views from the top. The east coast can be seen. You look along the length of the Kaimai Ranges. The track starts at a small hot springs and mineral park in Te Aroha, 30kms east of Hamilton.
