Yeah great view from the summit.
Don’t be fooled, heaps of steps to the top.
Well worth it, even for someone as unfit as me. Savour the moment

Nice view of the harbour and the beaches, it is nice to read about the settler history on the way up.

Easy walk for half an hour. The track is sometimes not easy to find, but it is worth it. The views from the top is great.

From the carpark the walk is quite hard to find (sign small), nevertheless after one found the track and made it to the top (track itself is good!) the view is amazing, very nice sign at the top of the mountain explaining the views/island names.

Quick hike, not difficult though there is an incline. Great view! You can see the ocean, harbours and both cities. It only took us 15-20 minutes too.

A walk to the top of this extint volcano rewards you with wonderful 360 degrees views of the local beaches, bays and Tairoa harbour and estuary.
