About the path

A path you can cycle from either direction starting at either the city or Newmarket end.

If you are an experienced rider this could be a good challenge for you. It has a mix of on road cycle lanes, park paths and cycleways, and some short sections on the road.

The route is mostly flat but the hill up to Auckland Domain offers quite a challenge.

If you think this is going to be tough to start with, start from the Newmarket end and catch the train back to Newmarket.

Along the way stop at in the open spaces of the domain, climb a tree, visit the Auckland War Memorial Museum or kick a ball around.

Finish with swim at the Newmarket pool, or catch a ferry to Devonport depending on which end you start.

Fill your drink bottles at the water station on Carlton Gore Road or outside the ferry terminal.
