Undulating, some big hills
This is a hard track to get lost on, if you follow the signposted routes. Starting from Port Jackson, run along the beach heading north and follow the coastal track. There's only one. When you get to the gravel, continue up and over the hill toward Fletchers Bay. After Fletchers bay you'll be on the Corromandel Walkway, which you'll follow until you reach Stony Bay. Midway along the track there is a possible route to go on the stock route to Stony Bay. If you want variation on your way there or back, you can take this route for a more consistent up and over the hills track.

There is water available at Port Jackson, Fletchers Bay and Stony Bay camp sites. DoC advises to boil before drinking, so if you are concerned, consider bringing a purification tablet.
There are some small streams along the track, however they flow out into the ocean and have farmland upstream. Not recommended.
A 2km section of the track is on clay and could get muddy and slippery after rain.
Note: this track is ~1.5hrs from the nearest town of Colville, so make sure to take enough supplies to get you through.
