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.

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.

Nice walk.. Short walk but full of stairs. I would rather categorize this as Moderate..

Amazing walk. direction signs are not up to the mark. wise option is to get the trail map available in the information centre there.

The view is amazing

Easy walk to go with kids

The sand dunes are amazing, I recommend going over them rather than following the river on the way to the lake, you can see then how steep the dunes are into the lake. Around lake is a nice easy walk, or quick run. It's refreshing to walk in the river on the way back. Your shoes will get wet. Do some drills running up dunes, and boogie board done, excellent workout. In summer best to go early or late in the day.

Stunning views!!!

Nice easy walk. But lovely starter to Nz Forrest’s

Absolutely beautiful scenery . Great walk for beginners.

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

Miles of wildflowers. We walked a total of 12 miles, 6 out and back, but the trail is much longer. Mostly a moderate trail, with a couple spots of old growth areas that had rocky boulders that make you use your arms to climb up and down. Great Lake views. Very nice coffee house at the base “sign of the kiwi” with great burgers. We did not try the ice cream next door.

It was such a great walk. Loved it.

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

Can access via Coopers Creek Carpark or View Hill Carpark (requires vehicle low river crossing which I wasn’t expecting). Fantastic view of the waterfall making for some amazing photos!

Nice easy walk, access to quiet beach. Very picturesque

Quite an easy trail to walk if you have some experience in tramping. I would have much preferred if I brought my mountain bike with me though. When driving in there are a few fords so if just rained and your cars suspension is low, good luck.

Easy flat ride
