beautiful waterfall

A cool short walk, especially for family's.

beautiful short walk nice native bush and great views

Trail connect to the beach. It was beautiful, huge black sand beach.

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!

I did this trail in the afternoon following a rainy morning. The trail is very well maintained and mostly gravel so it wasn't muddy. 90% flat.

Like walk in the park easy peasy

Nice n easy for all ages

The full track is currently closed to prevent the spread of kauri dieback (7 July 2018). Can be muddy when wet.

Zion Hill Track section closed due to Kauri dieback. Beach access still available.

Short Hike down through the bush to the beach, fairly steep at points with a rope to assist the final climb down to the beach. Great views from the top and down at the small beach looking out into the Manukau Heads. Good for a quick hike when time is short.

good view, worth it.

Beautiful track! Quite tricky for the unfit due to steepness of the climb. However, truly worth it. The view is magnificent and breathtaking. We witnessed the 360 rotation view of whatipu. At the top you will see a bench where you can absorb the beauty and peace of nature has gifted us. Worth the climb, also tricky to go down since some rocks slides down with you. Otherwise, really worth it.
