Start on Kaiteriteri Beachfront, take the track to Little Kaiteriteri. The Stephens Bay Walk starts at the far end of Little Kaiteriteri beach, and follows the coast right around to Stephens Bay. From here, run along Stephens Bay Road and turn left onto the Riwaka-Kaiteriteri Road. There is a short run along the road (take care as it has very little verge) until you reach the sign at the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park. Follow the "Easy Rider" trail to the start of the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park then switch onto "Cruise Control" followed by "Glade Runner" or "Shady Lady", then "Revelation" which brings you back to Martin Farm Road. You can then either run back to Kaiteriteri Beach front along the road, or take an additional off-road trail which starts at the edge of the estuary and proceeds clockwise around the estuary to the back of the Motorcamp. Most of this run is trail. It pays to be cautious when running in the Mountain Bike Park in case of bikes.
