Walking track

Starting from Arataki Visitor Centre, the track goes down a concrete path past the scenic picture frame. There is a gravel-surface short walk (slight uphill gradient) to a viewpoint of the Manukau and Waitemata Harbours. The track then descends steeply and crosses Jacobsons Depot Road. The walk continues, with scenic views, to meet Exhibition Drive at Mackies Rest. Please be aware that this track is also available for cyclists. Those intending to walk the Hillary Trail have footpath access from public transport at Titirangi via the first part of Scenic Drive, Exhibition Drive and the Beveridge Track.
