“Breathtaking”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

You can do as much or as little of the Hilary Trail as you want as it is easily accessed from the Arataki Visitor Centre.
As my husband has recently had heart surgery, we only went to the lookout at the beginning of the trail. The 29 steps was good exercise and rewarded with a beautiful extensive view of Auckland.
The other tracks up there are well worth visiting if you have an hour or so to spare.

“Great walk”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I walked 2 days of the Trail with my daughter. What a great area. The scenery is forever changing and beautiful. On the 2 days we were on the trail we only saw 4 other people walking. I have walked this part of the trail, Huia to Piha before and walked the rest of it at other times. This is a good solid walk without lots of other people.
