This short but strenuous walk starts on Anawhata road a couple of hundred metres before the end of the road, there is a little parking bay there or parking on the side of the road but do not go blocking the road as it is narrow as it is. The walk is best done in the dry as the lower sections hold a bit of water, the first part of the track you are inside the native bush and can not see much until you come to a clearing where there once was a house or shed climbing up onto the elevated area you are greeted with an absolutely stunning view of Paikea bay a hundred metres or so directly below you.

From now on the track drops down through the native bush and levels out as it scraps into the side of the cliff you need a good head for hieghts as it is a steep drop down into the gully below. now the track gets steep again as you travel across the ridge line and come to a sort of plateau with a stunning view of the entire west coast, now the track drops down to the rocks along way below.

You can climb up onto the rocky point here but you need rock climbing experience easiest to just go all the way to the bottom, at the bottom head left around the rocks you can get just about to the end but are blocked by a large cut out filled with water, if there is any swell running you need to be very care full along the rock face as the waves can and will go right over the rocks.

When you return back to where the track is sliced into the side of the cliff there is a track that heads down to Whites beach it is nearly vertical but you can explore the beach below then return up the track and onto the road and head back to where you parked.
