If you have free time in Auckland, a pair of walking shoes, and no money this might be worth the time. Otherwise, it was definitely not worth it. You'll need a map, as the small arrows marking the walkway are not always in the most obvious place. There are a few nice parks along the way (One Tree Hill, Auckland... More

The views from Mount Eden and One tree hill are spectacular and we were helped by an excellent guide on Mount Eden. however to find your way to Mount Eden and on to the Hill required a lot of doubling back and asking people the way. The stress of finding your way spoilt what could have been an excellent walk.... More

This 16km walk through the city has surprising amount of diversity taking in CBD, parks, volcanoes and residential areas. Although it's pretty well signposted, there were a couple of times where signs were missing or not easy to spot - there is a map that can be downloaded onto your phone before you start. (no URL links allowed on Tripadvisor... More

This is a great walk, from one park to another with transitions largely in residential neighborhoods. I (a woman) walked it alone and at no time was I concerned about safety (except crossing the street with traffic going the "wrong" way). The route takes you *past* One Tree Hill, but of course I went to the top, from which there... More

This was a great idea. We got to see so much of the city in one day. But it is not easy, its a long walk, sometimes pretty steep and uneven ground as you head up the volcanoes etc, I dont think you need to be super fit but those with moblitiy issues would be in trouble. Incredible views from... More

At one end is a motorway and lots of pylons! but it is well worth the views at Mount Eden. At times I felt i may not be on the right path but usually if you kept going forward you would end up finding the arrows! great to get a sense of the city.

I agree with a previous reviewer - head north! We caught the train from Britomart to Onehunga ($5 and about 20 min ride). The walk is lovely and mainly through parks. Signage was great but still a good idea to have the map with you. It is an easy walk and a lovely way to get out of the CBD... More

I am an Auckland local and I love this walk. It doesn't matter which way you walk from, Onehunga has really nice cafés on Onehunga Mall Rd, the buses and train also come near here. This is about a 10min walk East from the Onehunga finish sign. It will take about 5 hours, I'd suggest going up the summit of... More
