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

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

My favourite coastal track in Auckland.

Amazing 360 views. So beautiful.

Nice short trail, especially Vincent's track was nice.

Beautiful vistas. Nice ups and downs. Some erosion on trail. Windy. Well worth it.

great walk and view

Loved it. Breath taking views

Great

Quite a challenging track for me especially coming back to the car park. There were so many stair cases that I had to take a break since my legs are not that resilient. Otherwise enjoyed this track, I did enjoy the challenge too! I love the hanging bridge just after the car park and the walk to the waterfall is pretty easy. Although be aware to get to the waterfall you will need waterproof shoes if you don't want to get your shoes wet since I end up with soaked soggy socks, despite that the waterfall is so beautiful and also quite muddy as it comes with water areas.

Easy track through mostly grasslands
A few nice views of the coastline, and an excellent walk along the beach when the tide is low. Unfortunately lots of the canopy has been cleared away for farmlands
Medium traffic; saw a few runners and a couple other hikers along the way

Fairly easy trek with gentle hills and steps up the steeper gradients. A few spots of mud and minor washout.
Very nice views throughout of the coast, rock faces, and through forests.
Medium traffic; saw 5-10 other along the track

amazing views with every turn, no difficulties in passing through

Great! Bring food to rest for a while in one of the many spots enjoying stunning views and private beaches
