Having last completed this walk 36 years ago, the views hit you just the same. Suitable for kids and able bodied persons. Start from rocks rather than stream crossing for best experience.

If you want to travel a bit differently and discover some of the best beaches in Northland, follow the bike trail (& drive if you don't want to ride a bike!) Waipu Cove, Langs Beach, then on around to Mangawhai, it's awesome.
