This track is well sign-posted so it is fairly impossible to get lost. The track can be very busy in the peak season over summer so I prefer to run it in the shoulder seasons or even on a clear, still, winter's day. Plenty of toilets en route. Cell coverage is intermittent but mostly reliable. You can catch the aquataxi to many other points in the park and run back to Marahau. From Awaroa it is about 35km, from Torrent Bay it is about 15km, from Anchorage it is about 12km. Many options - all great! A lot of the track is under cover of surrounding forest but there are some ridge top, exposed areas so pack sunscreen. Insect repellent could be useful if you plan to spend a lot of time sitting on the beaches enjoying the view!
