This route follows the Five Summits walking route established by Pukekohe Tramping Club. As there a lot of twists, turns and byways rather than set out a lengthy description of the route, here is a guide to finding your way.
The route is blazed a lot of the way with orange triangle markers, most noticeably on the sections off-road through parks, by-ways and on the streamside sections. However the major road intersections are not always marked, so this relies on secondary navigation.
Follow the trail markers, and take a GPX trace of the route. You may also wish to have the route guide (as linked below) on hand, and perhaps access to Google Maps.
From the start, at the Pukekohe train station, you proceed to cross Manukau Road and onto Harris Street opposite. Once you get to Bledisloe Park on your left, angle through the park and pick up your markers to follow from there. Note that the route, as per the markers map, does not directly touch two of the summits, but in true Wild Things style this route does. The GPX does not trace these points perfectly.
At Cape Hill, at a T junction right below the summit, the route will be marked to your right, however take a left to follow the path to the summit and then double back to follow the orange markers. At Rooseville Park the trail off Ngahere Road will take you below the summit and if going this way there is a steep slippery slope to climb to the summit - proceed further up the road slightly and angle across the grass park to the top and the down the other side.
