Bottom to top climb up Signal Hill - well-graded and gradual on the way up, fun and fast back down!

The Big Easy is a well-built trail that climbs very gradually to the top of Signal Hill. Its a nice workout up and a blast coming back down.

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

This trail can be ridden up and down, so watch for oncoming traffic.

Description [Suggest Changes]

The Big Easy starts above the athletic fields behind Logan Park High School. Look for a well-kept and shingled trail that ascends gradually from the northeast corner of the upper field (which can be muddy), rather than any of the steeper descent routes coming down Signal Hill. The trail begins by following Opoho Creek up a quiet valley, and then pulls away to switchback its way upward. The going is easy, although the climb is consistent and long.

The upper half of the trail passes in and out of logged areas, which have good views (but watch for gorse!). Eventually, the trail tops out at the Centennial Memorial on the summit of Signal Hill - enjoy the beautiful views of Dunedin, the Otago Peninsula, and the ocean beyond! Head back down the way you came for a fun and easy ride, or try one of the many steeper and more technical descent tracks that lead down from the top.
