Starting from Havelock the track zig-zags at a very runnable grade into the bush. You will be spoilt for views of the various bays along the way to Picton (or Havelock if doing it reverse). The track is well signposted and has a couple of km section of road (they're working on finding more trail routes) towards the Havelock end where you go past Linkwater.
There are currently no members to show for this trail.

From Havelock town centre, go down Queen Charlotte Drive - signposted as the Scenic Route to Picton.
No designated parking bays, but free parking in Havelock (200m away) or on teh roadside by the trail start.
When you exit Ngakuta Bay onto the road, don't go up it - the sign is a little ambigious here. Instead you should be crossing the road and heading back into the bush.
Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
Water is available at a few places along the way in the bays/DOC campsites that you pass through. Also toilets ;)
Open all year.
