Start from car park and do a quick loop of the signal station track before heading down stairs to the ocean (west) side of the track to get to the Waimamauku Coastal Track. Following the orange DOC markers southwards. Turn around and back to the start at any point along here when you feel you have had enough. Alternatively, access is possible through to Waimamaku Beach Road at southern end of track if you can arrange a pick-up from that end.
