From Great track. When you enter from Karekare keep left and head out to the cliff. This takes you up the coast with stunning views. Great walk with 2 loops

Good track and well defined. Mercer Bay loop would be great on its own if you just wanted a quick hike with great views.

Easy. Well maintained. Plenty of shade. Breathtaking views of the west coast cliff. Windy as always. A bit hot around noon on a sunny day.

Lovely trail. If you did other cliff walks in the area this one is not as spectacular. Still it made for a great day trip!

2 hours 18 minutes with lots of photo stops and including a side trip to a lookout on the Mercer trail. I don't think this route is actually 6 miles - my phone estimates I walked 4.8.

Well marked and overall easy but be ready for a bunch of stairs. There is one section where it’s rocky and a chain is provided to assist but not required. Would be great views of the coast on a good day!

First to Review

Well groomed track, newish stairs - climbed 136 floors, 15,000 steps but all worth it as the views & variety was stunning. The loop wasn’t that clear so when you get to the intersection go left. The toilet block in the carpark is the excellent, park here, go back up the road then turn left in what looks like a private drive with several letterboxes, this leads you to the start of the track
