Auckland City Walk is located in Cascade Kauri regional park
Track closed and is being assessed for storm damage.
This walk is a favourite for Auckland families. It provides a good introduction to the area and is one of the most beautiful walking loops in the Waitakere Ranges. Marvel at the huge kauri, one with a girth of 6.5m, and the large totara which were once used to make magnificent waka (canoes). A short side track leads up to Cascade Falls, set amongst towering rocky bluffs. Information signs along the way explain interesting features of this forest.
Walk starts from the swing bridge at the lower end of the picnic area and follows the bank of the Waitakere Stream. At the junction of Cascade and Waitakere Streams, a short track (150m) on the right branches up to a small gorge and waterfall. The main walk continues across the wooden bridge and along the stream to a second bridge, then ascends gradually back to the upper picnic area on Falls Road.
Pram access short walks are suitable for most wheelchair users with assistance, mountain buggies, young familes and some types of walkers. All pram access short walks are part of the path classification of tracks and are suitable for people of most ages, mobility and fitness.
Theft from vehicles is not common but unfortunately can happen.
