We walked up the hill this morning nice and early and it was just heating up. There were many on the track already. We went left and headed up. The sign said 45 minutes but we made it up in 25 at a leisurely pace....More

we had planned to climb Roys Peak but due to time restraints - did this easy walk instead - a real treat - easy walking, lovely views, saw many far too overdressed which made their walk uncomfortable - it is an easy walk

Easy eating is slightly misleading on a warm day but climb us well worth it as views are spectacular at the top and even on the route up.

Worth doing but quite hard going. Amazing 360 degree views of the whole area. It is supposed to be a moderate climb but quite steep in places but definately worth doing

The parking lot was a bit difficult to find ss the sign is very small. its not an easy hike, i needed frequent stops but most young people were walking up fast. the views are beautiful and you can see 360 degrees

We did the circular walk up Mount Iron track on a Saturday morning. It was a lovely walk and worth the views from the top. A bit steep in places but no need to rush.

Worth the pain of a walk to the top for some great views, If you can't do Roy's peak then do this. Me and the wife, not the fittest managed and were passed by a couple with a pram. No excuse anyone can climb.

Hi, As in the previous answer - go out of Wanaka and park up on the left hand side of the road - no problems re parking. Go through the gate which is marked - towards the signed trail. You can go up one side and down the... More
