This route is part of the Shoe Science Auckland Collection
From the car park, go down the road to the start of the track. Say hi to the alpaca's near the start of the track.
Easy to follow track with a few recent slips and fallen trees to negotiate (from the April/May 2017 rain/storms).
The track can be muddy at times (after heave rain fall). The slips are passable, nothing a trail runner can't handle (might add to the Gnarl factor).
Keep following the track pass the mangroves until you reach the boat yard on Shelly Beach. The last part before the boat yard goes trough peoples back yard, but this is a marked track.
After enjoying the view on the beach, turn around and go back the same way. At low tide you can continue along the foreshore to Cockle bay (please take care as this can be slippery).
There are currently no members to show for this trail.
