About this track

Description

This track carries on from Giant Tōtara Walk

It winds up steadily through forest and then north through open grasslands and regenerating bush. Good views are possible from this section of track.

The track then turns and climbs steeply up a gap in the bluffs, over boulders. It reaches open tussock tops before eventually climbing onto Montgomery Peak, with views of the peninsula and Akaroa Harbour.

Getting there

Drive to Hilltop on the Akaroa Highway then turn along the Summit Road for 200 m to a small area at the side of the road where you can park and start the Giant Tōtara Walk.
