On this walk you can just go around Diamond Lake on the lower circuit or walk the upper level circuit which is more strenuous but with a stunning lookout when you reach the top.

 A lower level circuit that takes in the Lake Wanaka viewpoint, with great views of both the lake and its islands. Sections of the track can be steep and are often slippery, even in summer. Extreme care is required. Because of ice, this track is not recommended during winter.

An upper level circuit that winds its way to the top of 775 m Rocky Mountain. The views from here include the Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana and Mount Aspiring/Tititea.
