This is quite an easy walk. Some hills but nothing steep. We walked on a Sunday morning and the track was fairly busy but everyone was able to walk or jog at their own pace. Some spectacular views. It took about 40 minutes. We didn't rush and also stopped to take photos.

The walk around the base made for a nice warm up for hiking up to the summit, though it would have been a fine enough walk all on its own. The scenery really beautiful and it was a nice easy walk, so most people probably wouldn't have a problem with it. Judging by the amount of runners we saw it... More

Great track around the base of the mountain. Awesome views. Also pram friendly if you don't mind a few small inclines.

Just the most gorgeous views around every turn and the workers were present and keeping the track clean of debris! If I could I would do this walk every day for the rest of my life. There are many little vistas to stop for a breather or to just take in the view! A wonderful walk for all fitness levels.

We walked the base track around Mount Manganui, taking in the changing scenery and water activities as we walked. This was a well laid out track with plenty of room and numerous steps down onto the rocky shore or little beach inlets. It was an easy walk for all ages and abilities and pram friendly as well Recommend as an... More

This walk is about 3kms and is quite achievable and can be done in around half hour so if time at the Mount is an issue this is a great way to see the area. It has wide tracks which makes it possible to push a child's buggy around so no one needs to stay behind child minding. The views... More
