An awesome activity that won’t cost you a cent. Extensive scenery, activity and something we are proud to use. A walk around the base track in the Mt is on any sort of day, a pleasure able experience. Stunning scenery.

Mount Maunganui is a gem. Walk around the base track of the Mount in 30 mins, easy walk. Fresh sea air and gorgeous scenery. Sunsets in late August can be exquisite 😁😀😊

This was a great walk, not too hard and very scenic. We saw a seal lolling about in the water just off the beach. There are a few steep steps up and down on the western side of the track, so a bit difficult for...More

Have strolled,walked and run around this track on numerous occasions - so many in fact over the years that could not tell you how many times. Have also walked up to the summit on several occasions - also best 360 degree view in the Bay....More

What a great little walk. We left at about 5pm and walked around the base coming from the harbour side. By the time we made it to the middle on the other side the sun was setting which was beautiful. We kept walking around and...More

This is a fabulous walk, unfortunately limited to those who can negotiate the steps built to bypass the slip. No matter whether you walk from the ocean beach around to the Harbour side or in the reverse direction the view is marvellous - and you...More

My granddaughter and walked this walk today. Loved watching the sea and the waves crashing. Was quite an angry sea on one side and then calm on the other. We even were treated with the sight of a seal sunning it's self.

Love running around this track- it’s very wide / well maintained with great scenery!! It’s got a good combination of mostly flat with a few small hills - making it perfect for runners who enjoy flat running but also like the bush / nature! I...More

We ducked the rain clouds on a Sunday morning and joined hundreds of people, families, youngsters, older people chatting in friendship groups walking the base track. New steps going up head around a slip and it's so tidy and safe. Views were fantastic. Be wonderful...More

Comfortable 45 minute walk with stunning views, shaded in parts and seating on the way. Goes full circle around the base but due to some slips there is now stairs making it impossible for wheelchairs.

A small bit of it is concrete but mostly just a wide track and has rises so can be a little bit steep in places so would depend on how fit and stable your mum is. This walk takes about 30-45 minutes to do at a gentle walk

Hi, As below answer, active elderly folk use the track but uneven in places with some steps. Safe environment. Hope this is of some help.
