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.

  • Staying Safe


    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.
