Walking track

This multi-use walking and mountain biking track takes you to one of the park's highlights - the 360-degree view of Auckland's city skyline showcasing the islands of the Hauraki Gulf, Wenderholm and Mahurangi Regional Parks; all of which are clearly visible from the lookout. Mountain bike / mountain buggy ramps are installed at every gate. This track includes a steep 200 metre section and may also have farm animals on it. Follow the blue markers.

What to expect

Walking tracks should be suitable for people with reasonable fitness levels.

Walking tracks will:
  • Have easy to moderate grades with mostly compacted and drained surfaces.
  • Be well sign-posted with directional signs at track entrances and junctions and have safety signs where required.
Walking tracks may:
  • Have steps on excessively steep areas.
  • Have timber boardwalks and bridges over permanent wet areas and waterways.
  • Have seats and maintained views at areas of interest.


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.
