Taraire Track is located in Karekare regional park
The first ten minutes of this track heads to the picnic area at the foot of the Karekare Falls. This area is popular with weddings and tourist groups; however, it is also a great place to escape the sun during a day at the beach. As popular as it is mid week and out of season it is also possible to get the whole place to yourself. Past the falls it is worth heading on up the ridge and combining with a loop walk back down La Trobe track as the track passes through one of the largest groves of taraire in the Waitakere Ranges.
