About this track


The track is well graded though steep in places, and guides you through coastal forest and past a scenic waterfall.

Look out for the two old saw pits beside the track, which are remnants of historical logging operations.

There is a large sheltered picnic area next to the carpark.

Getting there

From New Plymouth, drive to the southern end of Tukapa Street, turn into Davies Street, and then onto Cowling Road. After 2 km turn right into the signposted drive to the reserve.
