Coast-to-Coast Walkway, Auckland

4.0
#6 of 19 in Historic Sites in Auckland
Put on your hiking shoes and trek Coast-to-Coast Walkway, a long trail extending from the Waitemata to the Manukau across Auckland. The 16 km (9.9 mi) path winds through hilly scenery with great views of the coast, harbor, colorful neighborhoods, and green parks. Look for five volcanic sites along the way, including the Domain volcano, which you can climb to its summit. Route signs are provided along the way, but some are missing, so be sure to take a map of the trail with you. Some visitors prefer starting in the south at Manukau and walking north, where the finish point has plenty to do and cafes where you can rest your feet.

    Despite the ease that could represent the maintenance of a reliable marking in urban areas, the Mayor of Auckland obviously privileged economies, since many intersections are simply impossible to understand without leaving his card. It allows can be a side a bit more "adventure", but honestly the adventure in the city it's not my cup of tea. Apart from some interesting passages (Mount Eden, Cornwell park, One Tree Hill), the junction between each has no interest. May make more sense to go by bus Cornwell park, and enjoy time save to take a boat to Rangitoto and a real hike. The end of the walk, between one tree hill and arrival at Onehunga, has really no interest, doing a half turn to One Tree Hill could also be a good option!
