The first section of trail leads you into the valley to the left of The Peak ( part of the mountain with rocky outcrop). This part is a gradual climb of 100 meters in a young forest of a variety of mixed hardwoods and softwoods. at the end of this section you will come to a small brook ( John’s Brook ) on your left. You then make a sharp right turn and start climbing the west side of the mountain for an additional 200 meters in a 500 to 600 meter distance. The top section is quite steep with loose rocks. The top offers a magnificent view of North Harbour and area including St. Paul Island.
