Good walk, great views, nice and easy.

Zion Hill Track section closed due to Kauri dieback.
Beach access still available.

This trail is currently (26.05.2018) closed to prevent the spread of kauri die-back disease. Conservationist said it will reopen in summer...

We enjoyed our hike in and swim at the falls. Short and nice cool break under the falls. We didn’t make it to the top but it looked even more amazing. That said, we were glad we didn’t as it started pouring right as we got to our car. Perfect timing. Easy hike.

Absolutely recommend to everybody hiking on this trail. It was very easy trail, only some slight up hill terrain which was a bit tiring. Once you get to the falls you can take a swim in the water. Also recommend you walk up to the top of the falls where the view is spectacular!!

Good trail with nice waterfall. Keep heading up and you'll reach the top of the waterfall which is great.
Good trail for kids

Nice trail and waterfall.

Nice trail with wonderful views of native vegetation and waterfall. Can be overcrowded at times, but overall worth doing. Good trail for kids.

Beautiful island. Grab the 0930 boat over and get the full day. The coast trail is well defined but a little rocky. You jump onto the Summit Road which is a drive able road. Just before the summit I went off course and checked out the Lava caves and then grabbed the summit hike to get to the top. Grabbed the tail behind back and around back down the front instead of the road back down. I was a little worried about time as the last boat is at 1530. DONT MISS THE BOAT!! Coming down the road I would uave gotten to see the light house and I think I would have had time. The trail down the front was nice too. Everything is well marked.

Short Hike down through the bush to the beach, fairly steep at points with a rope to assist the final climb down to the beach. Great views from the top and down at the small beach looking out into the Manukau Heads. Good for a quick hike when time is short.
