This famous 3-4 hour walk links the East and West coast roads together along a bridle path used for centuries by the Maori and European settlers.
Departing Coromandel Town or Whitianga, you'll learn about the abundant history, wildlife and geology from local guides as you travel before starting your walk at Stony Bay. Travelling westwards, the vistas continue to expand throughout the day.
The track climbs gradually through native forest with beautiful glimpses of the coastline on the way to the lookout. From here the tree canopy opens to the coastal clifftops and spellbinding views to great Barrier Island. The final stage is a picturesque downhill stroll through coastal farmland to Fletcher Bay where everyone enjoys the refreshments at the end of their walk!
