I would recommend this trail who is looking for a dog friendly trail. Easy trail. We went there early morning at 7:00 am and it was pleasant and no crowd. No fishing and people were doing kayaking.

Awesome walk...nice to go after 7 in summer..kids friendly

Beautiful view of the coast which was half of the trail, nice surprise with the lava caves!

A nice urban walk with two climbs

Nice walk up the summit, but the bit between McKenzie bay and the ferry was awful. Minimal shade, nowhere to stop and sit, views got tedious, and walking along a flat dirt road.

Very good walk, starting at the Water fall gully carpark, the very well maintained track follows the stream up the gully to a lookout point with awesome views of the harbour. The track then follows the cliff passing the Pink Beach and down to the main beach. we opted to take the steep grass track back up to the lookout and return via the Waterfall gully so we could enjoy the Bush and stream. Total walk 8kms. Next time we'll try the coastal walk.

Great walk from Long Bay to Okura estuary and back. Good path all the way, great views of Whangaparoa and Rangitoto, breezy up on the tops but also some lovely sheltered bays for a break or a swim.

Get a whole new perspective of Auckland, on a clear day the 360 views are beautiful at the top. Great way to see volcanic stone on this iconic island.

Nice moderate walk, lots of wildlife such as quails, pukekos, parrots etc. Amazing views! I enjoyed the small nature trail before the coastal track begins

Pleasant walk with a mixture of mixed environment from pastureland to native bush. Very open space with windswept views of Tiritiri Matangi Island with its visible lighthouse. There is also a botanical walk through many native plants with very informative signage and surprisingly, a small waterfall with an ocular pool at the base. Very well maintained park.

Using the longer of the two recordings, we totaled about 5 miles. If you think of the longer recording as a lollipop, the stick part is flat and open, with some parts along a roadway. The candy part is a much more enjoyable hike through the woods. Relatively easy, nothing steep or challenging. There are several bait stations and many had trapped animals in them.

Did not complete the whole track but found it a little difficult to navigate without using this app to guide me as it is not maintained and marked as well as other tracks. Nice environment and enjoyable walk overall :) had quite a few birds and other wildlife

Only completed the first portion of this track. Going in the forest and finding the waterfall was great. Finished off with a huge long incline.

Great little walk. Short but the views are worth it. Quite steep going up but it’s not so strenuous. Try to go on a clear day and you’ll be able to see for miles. If you manage to get to the very top then it is very peaceful, amazing spot to catch a breath! Defo recommend.

Great hike nice views and great vegetation

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.

This track is currently closed due for upgrading due to Kauri die back.

Great trails. well marked and love the photo images along the track. the Falls were a nice place to rest and take in the view.

Nice easy walk, access to quiet beach. Very picturesque

* black lava/mud/rocks
* see Auckland from top of Rangitoto hill
* coastal walk

Nice walk.

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

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.
