amazing views and trails are well marked. absolutley loved it

This trail is fairly easy. The hardest part is coming back up on the other side of Taylor’s mistake. However there is plenty of shade and places to rest if you need it. Cool to see what’s left of some of the WWII buildings and read a little history. Every part of this trail gives you a scenic view of the water.

Nice work with good views. Reasonably flat

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It was such a great walk. Loved it.

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

The sand dunes to the lake is epic for a summers day but beyond that the bush track is meh
