Beautiful trails with lots of variety. Did it on a rainy day so we could't appreciate the views as much. Hikers should know that there is no parking lot access November-March, signage is right at the gate with a VERY tight turnaround. We parked outside the gate and hiked up the road

I love John Dean! I live on Mount Newton Cross Road and access John Dean via Brownswood trail on Thompson Road. It makes for a great walk to the top, roughly 8km.

Some days the hike is easier than others. It definitely gets my heart pumping but easy to maintain a conversation. Intermediate?

If you are making your way up to the top you must check out Pickles Bluff, beautiful ocean views.

If you start from the parking lot, it's a relatively easy to hike around the mountain. If you start from the base of the mountain near the residential area and walk up the trails to the peak, then it is more difficult and mostly uphill.
