Nice walk to take at a leisurely pace. All up hill so you dont want to be in a hurry if you have young children or older adults. Views at the top are worth the walk.

Not a very long walk with rewarding views. Not many people on the track meaning we had the look out all to ourselves. Definitely a must do when travelling to Hanmer.

Fairly easy walk to the top. Lovely surroundings and great scenery, bit a long the way and beautiful views from the top. Toadstools everywhere - just a shame people before us felt the need to destroy most of them. Well worth it.

Good for pussy walks or if you want to pretend you did something to earn that meal/beer/wine. If you carry a small child up you might even break a sweat.
