An excellent tramp starting from Scenic Drive, passing Fairy Falls along the way (45 minutes). On reaching Mountain Road, complete this circuit by returning to Scenic Drive via Old Coach Road Track. This track runs on the original alignment of the old coach road that once connected Henderson to the West Coast.
Alternatively, from Old Coach Road Track, return via Goodfellow Track with its kauri covered ridge and views of Auckland. Turn right onto Fairy Falls Track to Scenic Drive
