From the heart of New Plymouth city, this gently graded trail follows the path of the Huatoki River. From its river mouth (at the Wind Wand on the Coastal Walkway) to its head above the Huatoki Domain, this beautiful track winds its way behind city office blocks and residential housing, through developed parkland and scenic native bush.
Access points include Hempton Street, Harris Street, Carrington Street, Sycamore Grove, Maratahu Street, Frankley Road, Glenpark Avenue, Parsons Street, Marian Grove, Camden Street, Brois Street, Budleigh Street and Woodleigh Street.
