This circuit extends across a variety of landscapes through native bush, pine forest and farmland. Leaving the Turitea Stream behind the track emerges into open space and a playground at the Atawhai Road access point, a great rest spot for adults and children alike.
Opt to finish your walk on Old West Road, or continue onwards and under the bridge into the Turitea Walkway. This walkway links to the Bledisloe Park Walkway and is also close (though not connected to) Poutoa Walkway.
