The steep 30-minute walk from the car park to the lookout at the summit at 390 meters (1280 feet) is well rewarded with spectacular views of the regenerating forests in the valleys and exposed steep slopes of the southern Waitakere Ranges. On clear days you can see Taranaki 200 kilometers (125 miles) to the south. Mt Donald McLean is accessible from a gravel road branching off from the main Huia-Whatipu road.
