Steep walk and many stairs to negotiate to see the stunning views up the top of this well maintained walk. There are places that you can stop with a few seats to rest & take in the views. 2 different routes are available but both the uphill tracks are steep in places one with more steps than the other. A bit hard on the legs if your not used to uphill gradients but well worth it. The calf muscles were a bit sore the next day but sure glad we made the effort.

This walk is great. It’s a steep walk but not long at all and there are great views all the way up and at the top. There is plenty of space at the top as it’s a popular track and and you could take a picnic up there. I would go regularly if I lived in Tauranga!

What a challenging walk up the Mount but a great thrill when you reach the summit. After walking around the mount we decided to walk up the mount. There are acouple of paths up the mount, we decided to take the path which was mostly stairs which was quite challenging but a great feeling of achievement when you reach the top. There is another path that doesn't have the stairs which we took on the way down and I would recommend doing both ways but would probably do it the other way next time (path up and stairs down). As we are in our early sixties it was a great feeling of achievement to do this and recommend giving it a try.

Whipped up the Mt whilst there on holiday and loved the walk. It’s quite steep in places but it only took about 30 minutes for us to get to the top. Great views but it does get very busy.
