If you shoot down to church bay from matiatia then cone back and loop the headland then back to matiatia its a pretty decent 12k with million dollar views. May not seem like a lot of elevation but very little flat. Lovely

Beautiful vistas. Nice ups and downs. Some erosion on trail. Windy. Well worth it.

Fairly easy trek with gentle hills and steps up the steeper gradients. A few spots of mud and minor washout. Very nice views throughout of the coast, rock faces, and through forests. Medium traffic; saw 5-10 other along the track

Amazing did it in August and it took all day because I kept stopping to stare at everything but I did not do the loop I stayed hiking on the coast past cable cable so it ended up about 7miles before I decided to hike back into town. Just get a map and keep going!
