My friend and I did this walk and took about 4 hours, with a stop for lunch. Good overview of the city with a couple of climbs to top of old volcanos. Otherwise the walk was pretty easy through mostly parks. Recommended if you like walking.

The 16km walk between the Tasman sea and the Pacific gives you a good feel of the city. Get the train from Britomart to Onehunga and then walk back following the signs. Take a map of the route too though as the signs sometimes seem to disappear. The start of the walk is unimpressive but it then takes you up One Tree Hill and Mount Eden, both of which have good panoramic views. You then head down to Auckland city centre. It is strenuous in parts. There is a good cafe/visitors centre in Cornwall Park, where you can fill up water bottles and they even provide sun cream.

A perfectly easy walk that leads you through the city, urban parkland, takes in the magnificent Winter Gardens, past historic sites, volcanic craters, along busy shopping streets and residential areas. It's about 16 km end to end and takes about 4 hours plus stops. It really is a great and different way to see the city. There are coloured signs - yellow southbound, blue northbound. But some are missing and some are deliberately defaced / vandalised. It would be wise to take a city map that shows the trail. There used to be a trail guide but it's out of print. The enterprising i-Site staff in Auckland have photocopies free of charge but you have to ask for one at the counter. Take drinks because there's not many retail outlets en route. If going southwards there are regular buses from Onehunga town centre about 10 minutes walk from the trail end.

Bring a camera and enjoy your day out, the picture is of one tree hill,which now has no pine tree and is often reffered to ,as no tree hill now days, how ever the coast to coast walk gives you the best of both coasts, where west meets east or vice versa, enjoy
