This path is 15km there and back, so make sure you pack plenty of water for your ride.
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. Signage for the cycle/walkway alongside SH20 Manukau Harbour will guide you across to the second part of the path.
On the Onehunga side, 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. Once you reach Hugo Johnston Drive, turnaround and head back to Ambury Regional Park.
