Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

This is one of the more popular trails in the area on a busy day so a morning or evening run may be ideal.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This short loop trail is a great option for families or beginners. It offers a great introduction to the area, and is a very pretty outing if you are short on time. Along the way, runners will pass by several spectacular kauri trees, one with a width of 6.5 meters, interspersed with many larger totara.

The track follows along the bank of the Waitakere Stream, and a short side track leads up to Cascade Falls. Once past this short spur, the main track continues across a wooden bridge and along the stream to a second bridge before looping back to the picnic area on Falls Road.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Lowland podocarp and broadleaf forest interspersed with the magnificent kauri and totara.
