Good walk, great views, nice and easy.

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

step , hard and good view

its easy and comfy walk.down to trainline walk that is my favorite

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

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.

Excellent trail!

Great views. Nice and easy track. It should be rated as easy.

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 short trail, especially Vincent's track was nice.

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

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

This track is pretty easy, mostly flat so not that physically challenging. The only challenge is the walk through the sand dunes due to the steepness as well as the strong winds. And another challenge is the muddy track. It gets too muddy if you take the walk from the sand dunes on the left side then loop around the lake as you approach the waterfalls. Pretty cute waterfall and an easy walk back however be aware that you will have to cross the stream (very shallow) so your shoes will end up muddy and soaking wet. Otherwise a fun place to hike. Parking can be competitive so be there early. Also if you want bring a boogie board so you can do some sand boarding!

Fairly easy track but has some seemingly never-ending hills.
Some parts of the pathway are scenic but many parts are simply a department of conservation access road
Didn't see a single other person during my walk

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

On a clear day, this walk is reminiscent of Ireland and thus has magnificent views. On a sidewardly raining day, beautiful foggy views. The trail could be better marked on the south coast portion of the loop.

Amazing did it in August and it took all day because I kept stopping to stare at everything but I did not do the loop I stayed hiking on the coast past cable cable so it ended up about 7miles before I decided to hike back into town. Just get a map and keep going!
