Piha Walks

October 30th 2016 / fitness

Piha is known for its dense bush, beautiful black sand beach and world class surf. Piha is surrounded by the Waitakere Regional parkland offering a huge number of tracks to explore. 

Piha has options for all fitness levels. The famous KiteKite falls track is a great option for the whole family. Walk through native forest and arrive at a beautiful waterfall for a dip. This and many other tracks start from the end of Glen Esk Road. With public toilets and an information centre, you cant miss it. 

North Piha offers many walks with views of the entire coast. My favourite is the Laird thompson track over to Whites Beach. Park at the far north carpark and walk to the end of the beach,  take the Laird Thompson Track up onto Te Waha Point for a breathtaking view, then join onto Rose Track down to Whites beach.

Only 45 minutes out of Auckland City, make the most of all that Piha has to offer. For more information on the tracks, see the link provided.
