Zion Hill Track is located in Karekare regional park
Track will be closed from 24th October – 8th December for major track upgrades.
A great track with a reasonably good surface. There are even a few seats and viewing areas to allow you to catch a breath. The track allows you to create a great day outing by linking with the Pohutukawa Glade Walk, Karekare Beach, Tunnel Point, with the Pararaha Valley, Buck Taylor and Zion Hill track back to the Karekare carpark. This is a great circuit offering a mix of landscapes including beach, wetlands, coastal forest and cliffs.
The easiest parking is probably in the main Karekare carpark. Follow the road across the bridge and walk through the Pohutukawa Glade to the picnic area. The track heads up the hill and along the ridge prior to descending to meet the Buck Taylor Track near the Waihuna Stream.
Suitable for people of reasonable fitness and experience.
Theft from vehicles is not common but unfortunately can happen.
You should take the same reasonable precautions you take when parking at other locations and remember to lock your vehicle and take your valuables with you.
