Distance 5.81 km Duration 5 hours Ascent 978 meters Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Fit

A fairly stiff tramp as there is an ascent of close to 980 metres from the Ski Lift at Knoll Ridge Café (WP22009masl). Parking is usually available overlooking Happy Valley. The chairlift is used to get up the first, frustrating few hundred metres as this is all pretty rough walking. The real ascent then starts 30 minutes up the Skyline Trail in line with the top of a ski tow. There is a whole range of terrain to cross from a rough track, loose sandy gravel, boulders and scoria, solid rock which can be fairly hard scrambling at times.
