We drove to the parking area at the end of Fyffe Quay to start our walk. Before we started we watched several seals around the car park and in the nearby tidal pools. You don't want to get to close because they will growl. The walk starts uphill so that you are walking along a ridge overlooking the ocean. The trail is marked by vertical post so it easy to follow. There are several places to stop and sit with placards giving useful information. One place you you can look down on the seal colony on the beach. The trail takes you along the ridge, through gates, over fences, through a pasture, a small town, a pine tree forest and back into Kaikoura. In all we walked for over three hours. There were some gentle climbs and descents and a couple muddy spots. We are a couple in our sixties and did not have a problem.
