“One of Wanaka's most popular short walks which provides spectacular 360 degree panoramic views.”
Mount Iron is an impressive, glacier-carved, 240-metre rocky knoll. From its summit a great panorama unfolds: Lakes Wanaka and Hawea, the Cardrona and Upper Clutha Valleys and all the surrounding peaks; many of them in Mount Aspiring National Park in the west.
The track begins over the stile by the car park and taking the left fork, climbs through low kānuka shrubland on Mount Iron's western side to the summit. After taking in the view and the information on the panels, follow the track to descend on the eastern side and return round the foot of the hill to the car park
