Starting at the entrance to the reserve following the track always taking the straight through option. Once you move off the groomed trails and meet the more technical (mainly tree roots) and muddier section you'll generally take right hand option. The track, even if divides two ways all ends up in the same place following the creek. Near the end of the track you will cross the creek via a bridge, once over the bridge go right and continue to follow the creek until you cross it again and head up the hill. Continue to climb the hill to the top and once on the road, go right and run for about 200m to get the view of Orewa beach. Turn around and head back the way you came but this time as you head down the hill you will see a track going off to the left. This route back to the creek may be a bit over grown and slippery, but eventually you will get back to the creek and see the first bridge you crossed. Don't cross the bridge but instead go left here to return the way you came and back to your car.
