Description for clockwise circuit (can be run easily either way).

Starting from the gate at the end of Onepoto Rd, head north along the coast. After about 500m you cross a small foot bridge. Take the left-hand path and head upstream. The path follows a gradual climb up the gully, until you reach a saddle and head down a short, steep section to the beach. Turn right at the carpark and follow the path back around the coast. The track along the coast changes between sections of well formed, surfaced track, and areas of unformed track. You can also run along the short beaches at low tide. Follow the track back to the footbridge and back to the carpark.
