  • Short drive from Orewa beach, great for a short hike, plenty of steps and trees, mainly Kauri trees to enjoy. Limited parking space.  more »

  • Nice walk through native bush. Large stands native trees. Noticibly you can taste the crisp clean air as soon as you get there. An asset to the area. Evidence here of pre-European history with the Moari dugouts at the top of the hill.
  • Lots of potential but a bit confusing. Some of the bigger paths - intitally secured with planks or gravel - suddenly turn into small paths with mud holes and roots sticking out everywhere. Best turn around the moment you notice the change, unless you are well equipped for a little cross country hike. There's also no good internet reception and weak gps, which means you have to trust your gut where to go and how far.
  • Bush reserve near the beach. Has a a couple of loop tracks and offers a cool tranquil place to explore if you want to get out the sun.
  • Nice bush walks very clise to Orewa. Recommend you check it out
  • Beautiful, peaceful walk. I go almost daily, and still enjoy it
