About the path

This ride or walk is in two parts connected by the old Mangere Bridge. On the Onehunga side, 4km of wide, flat concrete path hugs the Upper Manukau Harbour and passes alongside the Waikaraka cemetery. The wide path has a smooth concrete surface that makes cycling or walking easy.

The old bridge is a popular fishing spot open only to pedestrians and cyclists. Over the bridge the route goes through the Kiwi Esplanade Reserve, where the path continues around the shoreline. This section of the path is narrow so ride slowly and give way to pedestrians. The route ends at a gate to Ambury Farm, which is a perfect place for a picnic and an opportunity for the kids to see the farm animals.

The ride can be accessed from the Onehunga train station. A short walk from the station down Onehunga Mall will take you to the Waikaraka cycleway.
