Walking track

This multi-use walking and mountain biking track makes for a nice detour from the North Coast Track. Make your way out to the Tokatu Point Lookout or around the Tokatu Loop Track or for fantastic views. See the very rare prostrate manuka which grows low to the ground near the point. There are no marker posts on this track but there are directional routed signs at track intersections. Please be aware that some sections of this track are steep and can become slippery in the winter.

Walking tracks may:
  • Have steps on excessively steep areas.
  • Have timber boardwalks and bridges over permanent wet areas and waterways.

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.
