Not a well marked trail and not all landmarks are well described. It is a good way to explore the city and wander through a variety of neighborhoods.

Great track, well maintained

Davenport near Auckland, New Zealand

I stayed over night at the campsite it great to go with some friends good views

enjoyed the walk. track marking is poor

Not recommended on a rainy day unless you’re ready to be soaked. But lovely to see different parts of the city and explore.

Theres no reason this has to be an out and back. if you want to see more/different scenery on the wau back, follow the road instead, basically what we did on this recording. anyway, both islands are dope. love it

The two volcanos and the area around the Quay are the only real highlights worth doing this trail for. Lots of walking through rather uninspiring residential areas. The parks and stuff are OK but I definitely did not feel like we needed to do the whole thing. I thought the signage was really lacking as well and it was super easy to get off track - admittedly, I wasn’t using AllTrails as a guide during the day... just a local map and the posted signs. Unless you are really eager to spend an entire day walking around, I’d skip this one.

Perfect for people who just started living in Auckland or for visitors. You can really see some of the most stunning views and beautiful trees in all those parks!

This trail was so amazing! I can recommend it to all of the hikers. Alltrail navigation was sometimes wrong but it's not a big issue if you use your head and eyes. Thank you for this adventure!

For a city hike, it is nice. Long. My path was 13 miles. The signage is not helpful, as it is inconsistent and not always where you need it. I printed out the guide from Auckland City Council, but used the AllTrails app. The app kind of worked, but not easily. Mostly sidewalks and a few footpaths up Mount Eden and in Cornwall Park. There are cafes and other places to stop on the way. You pass through many city domains (parks). I walked through the shopping district in Onehunga and caught the #30 bus back to Skycity, which worked out well.

Loved it, two totally different islands. Easy walking, paths are Rocky but well maintained.

A nice urban walk with two climbs

Good way to see a bit of central Auckland, and gets some lovely views from the mounts. A bit of a (concrete) trek if you’re walking but makes a nice training run.

Nice walk through the city and a great way to see the diversity of Auckland, it's architect and it's green spaces

Fantastic trail/road/path but signage could be better- missing signs, hidden signs and confusing signs but such a fantastic trail. Definately will do this again.

Visited from the US, really nice walk around the island. I took the 9:45am ferry which is 30$ NZD for round trip. I recommend making a day out of it and catching a morning ride out to the island, the last departure from Motatupu back to Auckland is 4pm I believe and they won't wait for you :) I started with the summit hike and was going at a fairly good pace. I'm in fairly good shape so I made it in about 35 minutes. Views are ok, you get a nice 360 view of the island and can see the Auckland skyline from the top. If you want to continue exploring, the lava caves are about a 20 minute walk with some back tracking down the summit trail. Look for signs and trail markers, you'll miss them if you aren't paying attention. From there, you could back track to the main summit trail and walk the roadway down to Yankee Wharf and connect to the Coastal Track (map: https://www.topomap.co.nz/NZTopoMap/nz6303/Yankee-Wharf/Auckland). PROTECT your ankles and wear hiking footwear! The Yankee Wharf spot is a nice place to have lunch and view the serene waters. With a few breaks along the way, I made it back to Rangitoto Wharf by 3:30pm. Good way to spend a day outside of Auckland and be back in time for dinner.

Hi. Nice write up. The name of the island is Motutapu. In Maori, "Motu" means "island", and "tapu" means "sacred", hence "Motutapu" = "Sacred Island". Cheers, Brent.
