Lovely hike! Well worth driving 12 km gravelroad for. First is a pretty steep climb through the bush, with lots of birds around. When you get to the open it's up and down some hilltops until you're at Bell Rock. Hold on to your hats, because the rock formations are absolutely amazing, and it is also quite (very) windy. The view of the nearby mountain range is stunning as well. The track is pretty well signposted, though on your way back there are no more posts. Just follow the 4wd tracks and the path.

Wonderful track starting uphill in the bush and culminating on a rock mountain face with spectacular views of the Kaweka Ranges like I have never seen before!

Not one that many people walk - but definitely worth it. Great views of Hawke's Bay Ranges and Mt Doom on a clear day.

Easy/medium fitness walk. Wonderful view of the Mohaka Valley at the bell shaped rocks at the end of the track. 3-4 hour walk.
