This hike was rated as a 'easy' walk on NZ wanaka page. I would highly disagree. Walk is steep and the gradient is not forgiving. Would not recommend Nike runners for this gruelling hike. Amazing views and enjoyed burger post hike.
This was a nice hike, tough because the incline going up a mountain is never easy. But the terrain is very consistent and the peak is in view the entire time. There's a restroom at the beginning and another one at the viewpoint. About 45...More
My first top list wanted do trail after discovering the beauty of its surrounding. Never regret for the plan changes from my origin itinerary due to time constraints. The track is all the way uphill with some path quite steep but the views throughout the...More
This was a real struggle both physically and mentally. Both my husband and I love to walk daily flat walking that is!
But a 3 hour hike of pain gave us an hour of glorious views that we both will never forget!!

It's steep going up, and the track went from dirt to mud to slush to ice to snow. So you need good footwear, hiking boots really, at least in winter But it is absolutely worth it. The views are magnificent. Mountains and lakes for miles.
I have underestimated what it takes to get to the top and was in rush. Made it just before sunset and it is a super rewarding place to be. Beautiful vista and great for photography (and selfies). Chilly on top.
This hike was tough but doable for someone with moderate/normal fitness. You don't have to be an especially seasoned hiker but you need some endurance and a good attitude. The way up is very steep with very few plateaus and we had to take some...More
I wanted to do this track from the very first day I started planning our trip to NZ, but after checking the DOC website and seeing the mention of ice axe/crampon requirements in winter, we were worried we would be out of our league (neither...More
One of the most memorable times in my life will be heading up he Roy’s Peak Track with my husband and taking in the view! It was incredible & incredibly challenging (for me an office desk worker). If I can do it you can too!...More

Hi Sammy, I haven't walked the track in winter, but I think if the weather is clear and not too windy it might be ok. Be careful though as cold conditions might make the track slick which would make the descent scary. I would say go check it out and ask locals or hikers that are coming down what they think about giving it a go. Wear good hiking shoes and bring a jacket for the top, it was cool and breezy even in February when we did it!
