This walk is like unwrapping a present and discovering something new as each layer is removed.
Starting and finishing at Te Arai Point car park you will climb to a trig, take in 360 degree panoramic views, learn about the area’s history and connection to Cornwall Park, explore the secret dune lakes hidden in the coastal broadleaf and regenerating forest, and enjoy lunch in the dunes at Forestry beach, before an energetic climb over the Te Arai headland back to your starting point.
Degree of difficulty: Generally easy walking with two short (100 metre) steep (45 degree) climbs up to the trig and the headland ridge
Grade 3: Max 25 walkers
Equipment: Sturdy footwear recommended but good walking shoes ok. Poles handy but not essential. Bring morning tea, lunch and water
