About the path

Get active and explore the beautiful regenerating bush, stream and small waterfall features in Witheford Scenic Reserve.

If you're looking for an all-round fitness walk in a lovely bush environment, this Glenfield walk is a great choice.

The gravel and boardwalk path weaves through the bush, with some steep sections and a number of stairs to climb. Wear sturdy shoes in wet weather, as the track can become muddy.

Start your walk from Valecrest Place, where street parking is available. Access from Kaipatiki Road is also possible, though it's busier and there's no street parking.
