Tirohanga Track, Picton

The Tirohanga Track leads to a lookout in the hills overlooking Picton, with good views of Picton and the surrounding area. The track is well formed, and can be walked as a loop including some streets in Picton, or as a gentle climb and return to Garden Terrace, or a steeper track from Newgate Street. Total distance for the loop is about 5.5 km, with a climb from near sea level to the highest point at about 250 metres above sea level.
