On 9 April, Te Araroa Trust opened the Paekakariki Escarpment Track.

Running 10km between railway stations at Paekakariki and Pukerua Bay, the track climbs to a height of 220m and includes some breath-taking flgihts of steps and two majestic swingbridges.

The track can be walked in either direction - there are train stations and convenience stores at both ends. Paekakariki has two cafes and a bar. There are toilets in Paekakariki and Pukerua Bay, none on the track itself. Dogs, horses, bicycles or motorised vehicles are strictly prohibited, and please do not cross the railway lines on foot - you're liable for a fine of up to $20,000.

The soundtrack - Little Sines by Rhian Sheehan - is used with permission.
