Hike from Pukerua Bay to Paekakariki many many stairs two swing bridges lots of narrow cliff top trails. Not for the faint hearted. Pub at the end at paekakariki is a welcome finish point.

Nice views, lots of stairs. There’s a bit of road noise from the track as it runs along hwy 1. Took 2 hours and 45 min to complete. Main negative is having to walk an extra km from the train station in Paekakariki to the start of the track.
