Nice walk, not too hard and the views from the top are rewarding. Good for a family walk, it took us 1.5 hours.

Nice easy hike to get a spectacular view of Wanaka and Lake Hawea. The path is good and plenty of friendly locals doing it daily to say hello to.

Stunning views up the hill and from the top but a bit boring down the other side again. Nice walk though.

A steep climb in the rain was not much joy but the views from the top were worth it. Coming down through the bush was a nice end.

1 hour 30 minute walk takes you to the top of Mt Iron and back with magnificent views of Wanaka, well worth the walk, easy track with a couple of short, steep parts.

The lookout for Mt Iron is so great. Then, the landscape from the main has created nice memories for us.

Amazing view, though quite exhausting on a hot day so bring plenty of water. And DO NOT GO OFF TRACK. We did and we regretted it.

A wonderful complement to PuzzleWorld (if you can cross the highway safely), a brisk uphill with nice views (my day was cloudy and drizzly, but better than being in the mobs navigating the maze at PuzzleWorld).

Locals recommended and do frequently. Steep to begin with but easy relaxed climb otherwise - again carrying heavy baby. Great panoramic 360 degree views of Wanaka, 2 lakes and valleys.
