Starting at the car park, follow the well marked track. It takes you up the hill at an easy gradient which is very pleasant to run. The track winds its way up, sticking to the main track is easy and is well signposted where there is a couple of intersections.
Follow the track all the way up until you reach the top and the statues etc. Then turn around and head back down!

I did it!

    There is a big new carpark at the end of the lane beside Logan Park High School. There is a gate on it that will get locked at 9.30pm in summer, earlier in winter. Check the sign BEFORE you park!

    Could drink out of the creek, but I wouldn't. Take your own!

    Top little part of the track is exposed, so pretty nippy when windy.

    Part of the Mountain Biking Otago network of tracks, so be on the lookout for bikers. Places where tracks cross are well signposted.
