In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.
It is a steep climb, 100 meters in 15 minutes. If you have bad knees give Paritutu Rock a miss. But the view from the top of Paritutu Rock is well worth the effort.
