Conical Hill (Routeburn Track)

Located in the centre of the fantastic Routeburn Track, Conical Hill is one of two peaks you can visit on this multiday tramp. Conical Hill is a sidetrip from the summit of the Routeburn Track, and although it makes for a longer day, for peak baggers it is a must do.
