An easy drive from central Auckland and you can drive to the very top. An interesting monument which is referenced in the U2 song "One Tree Hill". Great views from the top of Auckland and the surrounding area.

Yes there are suburban bus routes from the city that pass by , but no specific return buses . Depending on which side you start the walk will vary from 10- 15! Mins without photo stops :)
