This track is hard : 2km long for 580m up, we did it in 1h30 to go and back and at the top you will have an amazing view on the 41m waterfall ! Hard track but has to be done !

Walk as slow or fast as you like beside babbling brooks through beautiful forest along good paths. It was spring- so all the blossoms were out- it was beautiful.

Easy walk around the woodland walk with our 2 and 5 year olds. Beautiful through the redwood forest.

We went for an awesome forest run in Hanmer. Lots of great walking and biking tracks right on the edge of the village. Hard to beat.

We went on a couple of the tracks, don't know their names, but they were very pleasant even in the early morning cold, and we covered around 10K's overall. There are a lot of walks, and bike and horse trails that we didn't experience.

We got directions from locals and went down several different tracks (also used google maps) but couldn't find this place and gave up. Probably just as well, as it was a freezing cold day!

Our family biked on some of these tracks. It was well sign posted and a great trail. We biked the easy trail which as an inexperienced mountain biker, I found it fantastic.

We rode the Easy Rider track, great track through the forest. Bit chilly in the winter months but would be a nice shady ride on hot days. Well maintained track, not too much fitness required but still a good workout and excellent being so close...More
