Te Mata Peak

Top views from summit lookout

A sealed road leads to this summit lookout (399m) south of Havelock North, an affluent suburb of Hastings.

Views on a good day are impressive out over Hawkes Bay, the Heretaunga Plains and the Pacific Ocean, with Napier due north.

There are also good 1-2hr walking tracks for hikers and trails for mountain bikers here.
