A scenic stroll along established native bush in Point View Reserve, just a short distance from the edge of the city. Point View Reserve is a 29-hectare natural heritage reserve with spectacular panoramic views.
The route is a loop around the lower section of Point View Reserve. The path is mostly sealed and there are no steps, so it's a good option for bringing along the pram.
If you're up for a challenge you can connect onto the Point View Lookout Path. Here you'll find spectacular lookout point with views over eastern Auckland and out to Rangitoto Island. The walk to the lookout point is mostly uphill and will get you puffing but it's all downhill to finish.
Start on Gracechurch Drive. There's not a lot of parking near the path start, so you can also find a park around Baverstock Road. From here it's a short walk up a gravel path to the starting point. There are also two access points from Kenley Heights.
