Easy navigation here, just follow the well formed (and reasonably new) trail. There are a few intersections going up, just keep right at each one.
(When coming down go right at each one and you will add a couple of wee loops to the out and back.)
Near the top there is a sign pointing to Summit... ignore that and carry on the main trail towards the Lookouts. At the top you follow the fenceline left for about 100m for the views of Stewart Island. Once you have taken the great views in, head back, remembering to head right at each intersection.
Features of interest
Lovely views of Stewart Island (on a clear day), Invercargill, Tiwai Point Smelter.... and lots of other gems.
