Accessed from either Russell Rd or Kauika Rd, there are steep inclines at both ends of the track. It passes through impressive stands of mature native trees, a pa site, nikau groves and views of the city and harbour.
From the Kauika Rd end of the track there is an option to turn right on the Kauika Rd link for a shorter, circular walk, which passes a lookout over the city.
Close to the Russell Rd end of the track there is a short detour via the Rust Track that takes you to the site of a former goldmine.
The track can be slippery after rain. Please follow the orange waymarks as the track adjoins private property.
