Begin outside the Omokoroa Boat Club and run down The Esplanade to pick up the trail at road's end. Follow the trail until the end at about the 3km mark where you'll need to head up to Lakeside Terrace. There's about 1km of footpath running along Lakeside Terrace and then left onto Lynley Park Drive.

Pick the trail up at Tamihana Park where you'll cross a bridge and when the trail forks go left. This will take you on a loop up to Ongarahu Pa and around Plummer's Point. There's a short section where you can run on the grass verge or road (very few cars) until you reach Kotuku Reserve. Look out for a blue cycle way marker on the right which will complete the loop and take you back to the trail and eventually where you began.
