Started at 6am and had to tip toe past sleeping campers. A good climb and the track is wide and uncovered. It’s worth taking a detour up to Boulder Hill - an 11.3km round trip. The view is amazing, the rabbits are fat and the Fantail dance to the song of the Tui.

A nice loop around Onepoto & Titahi Bay, on streets for return loop

An easy trail for runners and families. No real views of anything aside from forestry.

Easy stair walk up to the lighthouse

Super easy and flat ride would be excellent on a non windy day.

Enjoyable walk for the whole family

good track for the moderatley fit tramper. the gentle annie part is more well maintained.

I loved this walk glorious views my 9 year old daughter did it with me she was a bit scared at places but happy as to have finished it, some of the track can be a bit slippery with the gravel under your feet, and watch the rocks lol I pulled a ligament in my ankle but well worth the pain for the awesome views

Beautiful views we went at sunset time gorgeous as

lovely stroll on the city

Outstanding short walk. Great views of Kapiti Island and the coast.

Loved this walk! amazing views and challenging at times but totally worth it. Trail can be a bit exposed at times with few railings so not for somebody who is afraid of heights!

Wicked awesome wee walk

Awesome great day hike

Completed this circuit in a day with beautiful skies.

have done this trail before nice easy trail. anyone can have a go.

liked it a lot kids enjoyed it

Good viewing! This track is unsuitable for an amateur like me >.

Beautiful walk, easy (flat) walking for the whole family to enjoy! Bathrooms and bbqs at the park but generally no phone reception. Swimming spots and Lord of the Rings photo opportunities there too!

Beautiful coastal view! Some parts can be dangerous, because of the steep stairs on steep slopes, and the Wellington wind.

Nice fast way to the tops on the western side.

Easy walk
