Easy short walk along the riverside track from Trafalgar Street to park and up the hill where you can see for miles over the city and bay.

Relatively short, moderately steep track to the summit for amazing views from the Centre of NZ. There are a number of other trails which branch off, giving a good 90mins or so of prolonged walks, if you prefer to extend. If you plan to do the other walks, take water as we didn't find any fountains and ended up quite parched.

Great walk up - for moderate to good levels of fitness, it's pretty easy. Wouldn't be good for low levels. Great view from the top.

If you park at the lot with the signs for Branford park then it’s a mostly shaded, uphill walk which took us 14 min at a steady pace. The signs said it would take 20 min. Views are worth it. The parking lot is kind of hard to see as it’s surrounded by big trees with low hanging branches. There are several entrances/trails to reach the top - some ppl refer to walking from the CBD.

Fantastic walk to the top. Very well maintained path. Definitely worth the walk to the top for the vista views over Nelson.
