Mount Hobson is one of the various volcanic hills that pepper the Auckland suburbs. It is an area of open grassland and very fine forests. The hil is topped by a Mauri fort or pa. Great views of Auckland, the harbour and suburbs.

Great views of Auckland with amazing views of Auckland in all directions. This time around when I walked up mt Hobson. Was a bonus not to see any cow droppings near the summit was good.

This smallish volcano is accessed straight off Remuera Road. It's good for a Sunday morning uphill, urban stroll and when you get to the top you are rewarded with unimpeded views of Auckland and the Harbour. The gradient on the neatly formed paths and steps is quite gentle - nothing too arduous - but I can tell you that the wind can certainly be chilly on the top.

Auckland has many unique dormant volcanic cones, all giving stunning views of the city, harbours and ... the other cones. Hobson is very close to the habour and city, has easy, well cared for, walking tracks, and those great vistas.Well worth the small amount of puff to get to the top.
