About this track

Description

This track follows the second stream from the southern end of Gore Bay. It is well signposted by a DOC sign and a yellow fingerboard sign from the main street of the bay, near the beach.

Traversing an attractive 63-hectare reserve with a variety of vegetation and landforms, the track passes through rich broadleaf coastal forest, gradually climbing into regenerating kānuka forest.

Eventually it ends at an open lookout with impressive views of Pegasus Bay. Birds are plentiful in this reserve. Return the way you came.

Getting there

Drive on SH1 to Cheviot, then turn down Gore Bay Road (130 km from Christchurch). Drive 9 km to reach the beach.

Know before you go

The track can be slippery at times – care must be taken.
