The track starts out steep and the majority of the height is gained in a little more than 2km. The track peters out in places and care needs to be taken to ensure you stay on track. But overall there are good markings and route-finding should not prove too difficult. Summit views are worth the steep climb: south are Kawhia and Aotea harbours and in the distance Mt Taranaki. Return the way you came or continue on the track to Ruapuke Rd (as shown in the map and elevation profile below).
