Starting from the notice board or the top car park, this track leads up to the open pastures of Cudlip Point then down to the Te Muri estuary and back. Shorebirds are often spotted roosting on the rocks of the estuary or gathering food from the mudflats at low tide. Dogs on a leash are allowed all year. Some sections may become difficult in wet weather. Follow the red markers.
