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

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.

I regularly do this one from the Bethells side to the falls and back via the stream. A relatively easy walk that can be done in a morning leaving the afternon to do many other nearby activities. There are many stream crossings and at times it can be above the knees, though it is slow moving. A few deep pools allow a cool off dip too.
As at 12/18 this track is open.

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..

Easy, flat track until nearing the Arataki centre where there is a short steep section. Had more people than expected but not enough where it feels invasive. One part of the track is closed (it was a detour/alternative route) but the route recorded on this app is all currently open. Lots of bush and some nice views. Lots of tuis! We were also surprised with a stick insect in the middle of the walkway!

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.

Did the loop, quiet a bit more in and out of the stream then we realised but super fun!

Stunning views!!!

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

An easy walk and amazing views! Loved the gannets and the sunset!

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

We did a loop, starting from Goldie Bush Walkway, dropping us down into the stream where we crossed the stream via a suspension bridge. The trail then countoured up through kauri and fern forest. It then connected to the Mokoroa Falls Track. Then it goes downstream until it reaches a cliff lookout into the falls. We took the stairs down into the bottom of the falls. On the return, we followed Mokoroa Stream Route , crossing it several times, at times waist deep, and quite muddied at the entry and exit points along the stream. There is also a jumping spot into a large deep pool. Overall, a wonderful experience especially at the stream section with many swimming holes and cascade falls.

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.

Very easy loop track around the cliffside overlooking a breeding ground of Gannetts. There is an interesting ‘rock bridge’ one can cross over at the bottom next to where the waves break over. Super touristy.

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.

Nice, easy walk. Great views.

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.

Reasonably level track, but some routes are poorly marked. If you are only getting a walking symbol every half km then you arent on the main route! Not much variety in the vegetation.
