I did this trail in the afternoon following a rainy morning. The trail is very well maintained and mostly gravel so it wasn't muddy. 90% flat.

Like walk in the park easy peasy

Love this track! Well maintained, beautiful views and lots of lovely native bush and birds. Due to the number of stairs I would rate it as moderate, not easy.

Love this track. Did it on Christmas day for something different to do! Was a bit longer than expected, but an amazing walk and nice waterfall.

A bit longer than expected but well worth it! Walked from Cooper Carpark to Ryde Falls and back, that added an hour and a half to the loop each way. Don’t do the trail when it rained as it gets very muddy. Great Forrest walk with a beautiful waterfall, or 2 at the end ;)

Nice hike close to Auckland - beautiful waterfall area to stop and take a nice long break

Beautiful views from the lookout!

Beautiful views!

The full track is currently closed to prevent the spread of kauri dieback (7 July 2018).
Can be muddy when wet.

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

Loved every minutes- beautiful views along the way. Highly suggest going early in the morning before it gets too busy. The lava caves are a must see!

suite for summer, not winter, because you have to across the water by barefoot, cold.

Beautiful views from the top lookout, great to explore the lava caves. We had the segment along the coast to ourselves with great birding opportunities - kingfisher!

If you shoot down to church bay from matiatia then cone back and loop the headland then back to matiatia its a pretty decent 12k with million dollar views. May not seem like a lot of elevation but very little flat. Lovely

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.

Did this great hike on 1/25/18 with a group of dancemates. This hike includes a ferry ride, yay. Lovely to see the top of Rangitoto, views of Auckland, the kidney ferns, lava caves, the black back gull colony, the Baches, and mangroves. Overall a great day trip.

Excellent trail!

Beautiful hiking. Make sure u have appropriate gears because u need to go through the water quite a bit. But it is totally worth!
