Starting along a flat section of trail and a short piece of sealed road, the track follows Korokoro Stream up to Korokoro Forks (about 3.5km in), where you take the right fork (sticking with the stream) up to Korokoro Dam (another 1.1km along). Just past Korokoro dam you take a long flight of stairs, and where the trail branches again, take the right hand option up to Oakleigh Street (another 1.1km). All of the track is well marked and maintained.

Turn tail and follow your footsteps for the return.

The track takes you past Woollen Mills Dam and Korokoro Dam, following the track of Korokoro Stream for most of the route. 

If you know of any public toilets near the trail start or on the route, please login and then let us know so we can update this section.

There is a fair amount of (free) street parking along Pita-One Road (branches off Cornish Street) plus a small public carpark (for about 12 cars) on the corner of Cornish and Pita-One (but this takes Parkmate payment only - see here for more info).

There is also a small (free) carpark at the Oakleigh St end of the trail, so you could do this route in either direction or make it just a point-to-point one-way run if you could organise a pick up at the other end. The Cornish Street end of the trail is within easy walking/running distance of Petone Railway Station.

There is a water fountain next to the public toilets at the carpark of Oakleigh Street end of the trail. Would not recommend drinking from Korokoro Stream itself.

Unshaded for first few kms, so can get very hot in summer - take sunscreen!

At several points along the trail there are signs alerting you to areas of potential rockfalls, and recommending you don't stop between these signs as indicated. The trail is popular with runners, hikers and mountain bikers and is a shred trail, so be alert for bike riders in particular.
