The Hillary Trail

The Hillary Trail

The Hillary Trail is a stunning multi-day hike across the Waitekere Ranges regional park. Featuring native forest and coastal landscapes, the Hillary is probably the best and most strenuous walk in the Auckland area. It sounded like the perfect plan for this Queen's Birthday long weekend..

Rimutaka Cycle Trail

Rimutaka Cycle Trail
