Starting at the Pakowhai ki Otutaopuku Bridge at Memorial Park Reserve, the trail meanders along a spectacular stretch of coast (10 km) to Jackson Road (and the start of the Motu Road Trail). Hugging the sand dunes, the trail provides excellent vantage points from which to enjoy unspoilt views of the Pacific Ocean and rugged hinterland of the East Cape.
This is an easy (grade 2) trail that caters for cyclists of all abilities and fitness levels, providing an ideal family day out. The trail has an easy gradient that is enjoyed by walkers, runners and cyclists. The return journey of 20km can be comfortably ridden in half a day from either end – with plenty of time to stop for a swim and a picnic along the way. Right on the edge of the trail is a great holiday base Tirohanga Beach Motor Camp
