Starting at the bottom of the Pineapple Track on Tanner Rd you head up the hill following Pineapple. Once at the top, take a right hand detour following the signposting towards Swampy Summit. Follow the 4WD track and road up to Swampy Summit and around the dopper radar (big structure at top). Follow the track from the Swamp Ridge route around through to Green Hill. Get there, soak up the views and then head back!

This trail includes the peaks Swampy Summit and Hightop.

Great views over Dunedin, out to Blueskin Bay, down over the Taieri Plains.

Only a small area to park off the road. Residential streets around area, so facilities to park a little further away if needed.

Some water early on in the Pineapple Track, a wee fountain before you get to the water treatment plant.

Can be pretty exposed up on the ridges in winter, with snow/ice a possibility.

Lots of wood logs placed on Swampy Ridge section of track to help maintain it, but have to be careful of footing.
