Closed due to slip
Follow the red waymarkers along the coast from the carpark. At high tide, the Täpapakanga Stream, which flows around the impressive Mäori pä, can be difficult to cross. An alternative route heads inland past the pä and rejoins the track near the Ashby cemetery. The track winds through regenerating coastal forest and just before swinging inland goes through a fine stand of taraire trees. From the trig enjoy panoramic views of the Coromandel Peninsula and the Firth of Thames. Wander down through the farmland back to the carpark.
Walking tracks should be suitable for people with reasonable fitness levels.
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.
