Features Views

Rangitoto is a pest-free island. Be sure to check your bags and clean your gear and footwear before visiting the island.

Description

This wide and easy track connects from the Rangitoto wharf northeast to Motutapu Island, providing the connection between the two islands. The trail doesn't head to the true summit of Rangitoto, but skirts the eastern flank of the cone, heading through forests as it climbs to the junction with Summit Road. From here, the track turns east toward Islington Bay. Runners can also connect to the Coastal Track and the Wreck Bay Track from this route.

The island is only accessible by water; check out the ferry schedule for more information on getting to Rangitoto.
