This unassuming, 400 metre high peak provides many more opportunities than you’d think possible. A lovely drive leads you to the carpark at the bottom, from where you hike up to the top. From there you have breath-taking views of the Hasting countryside; the craggy hills, the ranges, the flatlands and the wide coastline; and it’s worth coming up here just for sunrises, sunsets, and stargazing or just a picnic. At a popular lookout point, you’ll be able to see the curve of the world beyond Hawkes Bay. If you’ve managed to drag a cycle up, have fun rolling back down. Off a steep side, you can abseil down to the bottom, or fly off the edge in a paraglide. It’s a heaven given cornucopia of outdoor activities.

  • One of the best places in NZ for views. We ran up to the peak; not easy in the heat but very satisfying at each little view point, and worth getting to the peak.

  • Took the blue route up and was a pleasant 40 minute walk! The top offered possibly some of the best views I have seen from a mountain range in all my days! Had the privilege of meeting a local for a brief chat.

  • Just a 15 minute drive from Craggy Range this view point cannot be missed. It was stunning. Much better than Bluff Hill in Napier. We went on a very cloudy day and the views were still absolutely breathtaking. You can drive up (which is what we did) or walk up. However you get there, it will be well worth it.

  • Stunning panoramic 360 views. You're able to drive right up to the top and enjoy the view for those not able to walk up steep inclines. Also makes it easy to bring the little ones up for the family to enjoy

  • No time? No problem, just drive up to the top and enjoy stunning views. Will do the tracks some day!
