This is a great walk - give the calves a good run for their money. Its good to start this on along the Brook, cruise up through a bit of farmland which has a few great big fruit trees and a walnut tree. As you walk up there are a couple of options with the track, essentially they will all lead you up to the top. An amazing lookout point that has vistas over Nelson and the bay. The track is quite steep on the way back down, eventually you will end up back on the street - there are several little track that get you there.
