Went for a hike up to the top of Mt Manaia whilst visiting the area. The hike from the car park is steep but not horrific (no hands and knees stuff). There are around 1100 wooden steps up. It was quite warm and humid in the trees but the scenery is absolutely beautiful. It took us less than 1 hour up and around 40 mins down. Training shoes are fine for the walk.

My wife and I drove out from
Whangarei and hiked to the top through very pretty rainforest. The hike is quite steep in places but worth it for the experience and the beautiful views from the top.

I am 60 years young and did this walk with my partner and 5 and 8 year old grandchildren. My 5 year old grandson found it tough going but with lots of encouragement and rest stops he managed to complete the climb and had a fantastic sleep that night. There was cloud over the top when we started but by the time we got to the top it had cleared and the views were to die for!
