  • Kakepuku is a beautiful mountain with a great walk to the summit. It is a tough walk but is definitely worth it. The bird life is great and the views are amazing.  more »

  • Quite a good little walk, steeper at times but there are steps at the steepest parts. The ground can be a little rocky in places, so wear suitable footwear. A number of seats along the way with views, and we has cellphone reception on skinny even at the very top. The track had just been mown when we went up, but I don't know how often this happens. We saw wild kereru (wood pigeon), quail, and pheasant. The track can be quite noisy at this time of year as there are a lot of cicadas around. I'm not that fit and the walk up took a little under an hour, and a little less on the way down. The path has some enclosed bush towards the top but for the most part it's pretty weather exposed, so bring weather appropriate clothing (ie in summer , sunhats, glasses, sunscreen etc)
  • Nice mostly easy up hill walk.. With good views.
