The track is described here from the eastern entrance on Cove Road. From the carpark, follow the orange markers along a short bush walk that comes out on a private subdivision road. Turn left and follow this up the hill – the surfaced road gives way to a rough trail that continues to the top of the ridgeline.

Follow the marked route and respect private property. Once past the last house at the end of the road the track continues along the undulating ridgeline through a series of grassy clearings towards the trig station at 297m. To access the trig follow a short track up the hill just past the kissing gate. Although not part of the Langsview Track this is a formed track developed by local volunteers.

From the trig there are amazing views of the countryside – north across Bream Bay, south down the Mangawhai coast and out to the offshore islands. The track continues along the ridgeline through regenerating bush with occasional views both north and south before meeting a roadway which leads past more private houses. Continue to follow the orange markers to eventually meet the end of Cullen Road and the eastern end of the Brynderwyn Hills Walk.

Return the way you came.

  • Access

    Eastern entrance: The Eastern entrance is along Cove Road just south of Bream Tail Road. There is a carpark here and a short bush walk that leads to the track itself.
    Western entrance: The western entrance is at the top of Cullen Road where it intersects with a forestry road. Cullen Road runs off Cove Road between Waipu and Waipu Cove. It's also a section of the Te Araroa Trail. If driving to this point, park before the water tanks. The track entrance is signposted and the track follows a private access road for resident’s vehicles only.

    No public transport at either end but pretty safe car parking.
