From the beach pick up Waiheke Road (up 4th Ave). Follow this uphill and then down for several km past Manowar road junction to Awaawaroa turning. After few hundred metres take signed right turn and follow gravel road to Awaawaroa track sign. Steep slippy uphill to top then even steeper slippier downhill with rope assist!
Track gets better up to Trig Hill but hard to follow on very top (head right to fence if stuck). Pick up main Te Ara Hura over fence and follow all way to Rocky Bay, then Dotties Lane and MTB track (Cathedral) to Gordon’s road.
Cross road and take walking tracks to Onetangi Sports Field then across golf course to road.
Turn right - track alongside Onetangi Rd back to village

Features of interest
Great views across island from the two hilltops. Beach at Rocky Bay plus fab one at Onetangi. Some nice challenging singletrack through the bush. Mini waterfalls on way down to Rocky Bay. Could divert to wineries en route if fancied! Watch for the 'Little Library' on the way out!

The Strand, Onetangi
Lots of parking down at beach. Bus 51a/b comes to beachfront and past end of Seaview Rd/gas station.
Only tricky bits are finding the trail on top of Trig Hill after the cow paddock (head across to the wire fence where you can see a gravel road - it's there) and the various mtb/walking tracks around Rocky Bay and near the sports pavilion. I used Dottie's Land and then Cathedral tracks near Rocky Bay to get to the road, but you could do others. Once over the road, check out the sign with all the tracks on as to how to get down to the pavilion (or just follow the road!) Track past there to road goes through the golf course and is signed.
Short-sleeved thermal top, Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
Might be some in the 'Little Library' hut at start of Awaawaroa Road. Untreated tap water at Rocky Bay. Gas station/dairy at Onetangi.
Awaawaroa track will be slippy if it's rained as it's very steep and clay downhill.
Watch that downhill off the first hill - hang onto the rope!
