Leaving the building at the bottom and head up the gravel farm track heading left. This road will curve left and then curve right. Just after it curves right you will see an archway to 'Lisa's Wish Grove'... head in there on to a great wee boardwalk trail. Follow this, taking the left fork at any intersections until one of those left forks takes you up some steps.
Just after that you come to a gravel track/4WD and here you turn right. At the end of this you come to a larger farm track - veer slightly right here and then left and climb this to the top, heading for the power pylons. Take a left at the power pylons. Running past them and downhill, you will pass a slightly less manicured track on your left - this is where you will come back out.
Meanwhile follow the road down, around a sweeping left turn, down some more, then it sweeps left again... follow this until the shed appears on your right. Just past this turn left up the hill... all the way to the top again. At the top turn right, go back past the pylons and veer left at the intersection & from here stay left all the way to the building site (which may be a shelter or lookout by the time you run it).
Stop and enjoy the views, then head down the path in front of you, follow it all the way to the farm road and across that between the 2 decorated poles. Follow this trail taking left turns where you can as long as they are taking you downhill (there are a couple that double back uphill). You will cross a couple of small bridges and pass all sorts of magic stuff before arriving back at the car.
Then if you have more time than I did you can head back and explore more!
Features of interest
This land was previously a farm, lots of love and volunteer attention and work has turned it into a wonderful native 'Haven' that is developing more every year. There are some lovely touches in seats, signs, shelters, all sorts of treasures to find on your way around. This route covers most of the circumference of Cue Haven, but there is more.... plus there are great views over the Kaipara Harbour

Cue Haven is on the Kaipara Coast Highway and is just under 3km north or Gibbs Farm - the one with the massive sculptures on the horizon. You will need to slow down and look for it as the signs are there, but not prominent.
There are several small parking areas. You need to open the gate to get in and close it behind you, then head up the driveway.
It is not a large property, so chances are if you take a wrong turn you will finish up either heading in the right direction or somewhere you have already been.
Long-sleeved thermal top, Windproof jacket, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
Pretty good all year round.
