Great trail. Very quiet. Only about 5km which is doable if you have little ones. Worth every minute. Views are awesome and you can even go for a swim.

Fabulous hike, lovely views, some steep parts, well maintained. We were the only ones on this beach and coastal hike. Be aware of the tides as some of this track you cut across coves that are covered when the tide comes in. Best bet to head out in the am and head back by mid afternoon.

Hard. Mostly uphill. Decent, but don’t underestimate the incline.

nice track an some cool beachs on the way

good just make sure you check weather an swell may see dolphins

good on a sun rise

Great track with awesome views

Be careful on the rocks near busby. Also, there is some loose rocks/gravel. Don't wipe out like I did.

Great nz Bush walk. Amazing Kauri

great trail, Nice view from high rocky cliffs & reefy shore below over vast blue ocean, then dropping down into shallow valley with a stream & enclosed bay perfect for a cooling swim carrying on uphill pretty much rest of way, took just over 4 hours there and back.

Decent hike - about 3 hours return. Has plenty of steep bits, and a lovely beach halfway to chill on.

easy enough. nice enjoyable track with great views.

Great walk, beauty views. Smugglers cove is perfect for a chill.

Super pretty, I ran most of it.
Saturdays are a little too busy.
I'll probably hit it again during the week next time.

Amazing landscape!

The 6 hours Twilight–Te Werahi Loop is amazing! Every kind of landscape, huge beaches, tropical forest, red rocks, sand, fields, swamp and there is nobody ! Only yourself to enjoy the beauty of nature !

Nice track - an easy hike filled with great views.

I love this hike. It has a great path, forestry, ocean views, but be ready for the lots and lots of steps.

What a lovely route... beautiful!!!!!

An easy walk with shags nesting and feeding their demanding fledglings. A bit muddy in the wet.

Great easy walking, picturesque bush, river and waterfall

We have hiked to the Peach Cove hut each summer for the last three years. I’ve gotten progressively more unfit, so it’s gotten harder each time! But the track itself is great, in good condition and well maintained. We stay at the hut for a couple of nights so we are carrying our gear, food and water which makes it tough. It would be a much nicer walk without the packs! We love it and it’s a fantastic family holiday.

Great for a day with kids who can endure 3-4 hours (one way and return) on the trail. Muddy in places after rains, but it's not that bad. Very easy one way, if someone can pick you up at the other end. (There's easy car access and parking at both ends.) No toilets for 4 hours! Lots of birds around. Spectacular waterfall at Haruru Falls end. If you start at Haruru Falls, you can have lunch at Waitangi Grounds cafe, and go back the same way.

Personally, I died with an overnight tramping pack on and it was challenging with the stairs but I'm also not that particularly fit but managed to do it, besides that the trail itself was pretty and it was fun to do and listening to all the native birds.
