Another Hill to Climb
Jul 2020
We actually managed to combine Tobin Drop and Tobin Track to do a beautiful circular walk. We also did it the hard way! We walked along the Arrowtown Millennium Walk out of Arrow Town ignoring the signs to Tobin's Track but carrying on. after a few kilometres you come across a sign for "Tobins Drop, which takes you straight up the hill and I mean straight up the hill, it is tough climb for about 30 minutes but the views are well worth the effort. Once you get to the top you have great views looking down on Arrowtown you can also see the Crown Ranges and Queenstown in the distance. We then took the far gentle Tobin Track back into Arrowtown

perfect short hike!
Mar 2020
Lovely walk along the river near downtown, then up the hill on Torins track. Its not a steep incline, as it is a gravel road, but it is uphill the whole way. Gorgeous view over the valley when you get to the top. Also saw mountain bikers and runners. You can keep going and get to Karawhau gorge. We hit this on the day of a big mountainbiking/triathalon which was fun!

Up hill all the way but worth the view from the top. Your calf muscles get a good workout. Good track bit skidy on the way down. Saw a hawk flying around the top.

ONWARDS AND UPWARDS

Tobins Track is an easy but long and gentle rise up from the Arrow River. The surface is rough and boots are recommended but the going is easy - expect cyclists to share the route with you.
Views get better with the height - over Arrowtown and towards the Crown Ranges and the Remarkables.
Allow a good 2 hours to walk to the summit of the track.

Pleasant small walk

Our walk took about an hour on a moderate incline uphill track. It reaches a plateau with good views of Arrowtown, the river and lakes Hayes and Wakatipu. A nice place to relax.

A great walk, but not for the unfit
Jan 2019 • Couples
A continuous climb up a a 4WD track which takes you up to a plateau (above the zigzag road of the Crown Range). Be aware that the times indicated on the sign by the Arrow river are too optimistic (we are keen hill walkers and usually ace the given times but not on this one). At the top are two seats where we had lunch. Great views over Arrowtown, Lake Hayes, and Wakatipu. We came down the Tobin's Drop which as the name implies brings you straight down to the Arrow river. This is a rough track and quite steep so most would be advised to return on the 4WD track.

Quite a steep, short climb for great views
Jan 2019 • Couples
This is a moderately steep walk all the way to the top so be prepared to sweat! However, the track is well formed and wide as it was originally for mining vehicles. The view from the top over Arrowtown and the surrounding mountains is excellent and makes the hike worthwhile. Allow a minimum of an hour for the round trip, which isceaily accessible from the centre of the town.

Well worth the effort.

The walk took longer than expected, but once you get up to the lookout, the reward is definitely worth the effort. Take water. And a camera.
