Enter the track by following the Onemana Reserve in a northerly direction, climb up the short steep grassy slope and you will see the track. Once on the track turn left after approximately 2 km on Pokohino Rd. This forestry road will take you to the sealed road you drove on into Onemana. At this intersection you can of course turn left and run down the hill to Onemana Beach, making your run approximately 6km. Alternatively cross over to Peninsula Road which is just over 6.5 km to the end where there is a short single track loop with good views over the Whangamata surf bar. Take the same road back for a longer run, enjoy!
