Point of Interest
“A full day trip but well worth it for the stunning views as you walk across the top of the coromandel. The walk can be done both ways in a single day or there are local tour companies who will drive you up there and pick you up on the other side”

Route
“The walking track follows an easy grade. Return the same way, or create a circuit using the Coromandel mountain bike track but note this is much steeper and slippery in places. Coromandel Walkway Time: 7 hr return Distance: 10 km The coastal walk between Stony and Fletcher Bays crosses farmland and goes through coastal forest with views of the Pinnacles, Great Barrier Island (Aotea Island) to the north and Cuvier Island (Repanga Island) in the east. The track follows an easy gradient with a short steep section in to and out of Poley Bay. It is part of an old bridle path formed by early pioneers to link the two bays. En route from Stony Bay to Fletcher Bay, a signposted lookout 1 hr 15 min”
