Estimated Times to Run







This is a nice run with a consistent gradient up a staightforward farm track. It makes a lovely after-work jog. From the top you have great views over Central Otago and Wānaka/Hāwea.

The very beginning is over-grown and you have to follow some cairns, but the vast majority of the track is very easy farm track. Could also be biked.

50 km

39 minutes




If you can't find the DOC poles keep going up, you're likely to find one in a bend or two. The track is fairly well marked but not well used.

Very patchy.

Windproof jacket, Cellphone.

No water sources along the track

Closed for lambing 10 October to 5 December each year. Can be windy and cold at the top in the winter, you may encounter snowy exposed conditions.
