“A beautiful coastal run with lush forest and golden sand beaches.”— Josh Rosen
This is a relatively easy run with mild elevation gain and long sections of flat running on well-maintained trails. The forest is lush and dense with interesting flora and fauna and the views of the coast are spectacular. Bark Bay is a particularly wonderful place to stop and camp. The sites are incredibly well maintained and just steps from the beautiful beach.
This section can be taken as part of a multi-day run on the Abel Tasman Coast Track. Alternatively, you can take a water taxi here from Marahau, and run back to Marahau in one day, covering both this section and the Anchorage Bay to Marahau section of the track. Be sure to check tide tables before going as there are both low and high-tide tracks for crossing Torrent Bay.
