easy walk with stunning view.

A wonderful hike! I did it Nov 13, counterclockwise. It was a sunny day, beautiful landscapes, amazing views. I really enjoyed this day! It took me around 5,5h, but I stopped several times to take pictures of this incredible landscape. I did also a long break at Cape Maria van Dieman.

beautiful hike can be done quickly, possibility to return by the coast at low tide

Very nice hike of 5 hours taking the time. I do not understand why she is defined as difficult because she has no difficulty walking. A beautiful diversity of landscapes, smells of flowers, cap Maria splendid, to do absolutely

Trail closed to the public. Private property.

Very beautiful hike completed in less than 2 hours. The 2 beaches crossed are wonderful and deserve a swim. The path along the 2 hills is beautiful with beautiful views of the coast and at the end Cape Reinga is worth the detour!

Completed in less than 90 minutes

stunning trail past layered rocks, Pohutukawa, rocky headlands and the odd beach. Riparian access across private land in places past grazing stock. dogs must be on lead or can be seized or shot. extremely muddy after rain. skills required. ropes and ladders in places . Not easy, more of a moderate hike. also not really a loop as it's return is via a road not a track.

Lovely trail, uphill near the beginning can be challenging for some but was an amazing little adventure for me and my pals. As you near Russell with about 40mins left to go you’ll pass a service station where u can pick up snacks and use the loo. Beautiful scenery that wasn’t dulled by some rainy showers

Lovely view along the coastline. Highly recommended!

Incredible views

Wonderful walk along the beach and hills. Yet be aware of the tide, when high you can not walk on the beach at many points, you can get stuck on the way back (we were, so we walked through the very dense bush on the sharp sides of a hill, we managed to stay alive). Worth it, though !

Loved this hike! The track is well kept, often offering panoramic views East and West. The hike takes approximately 1 hour 1 way and is not to strenuous.

This hike is pretty amazing. I got lucky and hit the hike on a clear, comfortably warm day which made all the views, and the views should not be underrated, just incredible. Lots of steep ascents and descents on this hike.

Great views! There is water at the carpark (close the the lighthouse) if you wanna refill before to come back to the campground.

8.3km via seaview road and takes one hr to run

Definitely do the loop if It's low tide. Through the hole in the rock and back. I recommend to wear good shoes for the upper and rocky parts and no shoes for the sandy parts. :) Oh, and a refreshing dive when your finished off course.

nice walk along the coast with scenic views. Would definitely check the tides to do the loop through the beach!

beautiful spot, perfect on a good day beforr a swim, good walk with a decent climb to get the legs working. track actually goes out to the point where you get a great view either side of the bay. there are bee hives along the track.
