This steep track starts at the edge of Lake Dunstan and follows a farm-road-style track up through the rock formations to the Bendigo Conservation Area boundary.

Great elevation gain on easy terrain, with views of Lake Dunstan and the Pisa Range. Keen peak baggers can use it to access Mt Kinaki and Mt Apiti. Typical Central Otago, it can be hot and dry up there; very exposed and no water sources. The area is teeming with goats!

Small carpark on the side of highway fits ~5 vehicles.
