About the path

A lovely scenic walk or cycle along the Pahurehure Inlet and residential Karaka.

The wide concrete shared path is great for pushchairs and bikes. The path is mostly flat, with a couple of 'ups and downs' along the waterfront which will get your legs pumping. Other than a few road crossings, the route is all off-road on a shared path.

There's seating along the way to pause and enjoy the great views over the Manukau Harbour.

Kids will have a blast climbing, sliding and swinging at the playground in Milano Reserve. The path passes the playground twice - so there are opportunities to play on your way there and back.

Start anywhere along the loop. You can also reach the path start at Pescara Point by walking or cycling along the shared path - cross at the signals.
