Description

The Donald McLean Track is a great starting point for those looking to explore the trail system of the inland Waitākere area. The track provides access to a host of other trails including Puriri Ridge Track, Fletcher Track, Karamatura Track, Huia Ridge Track, and Walker Ridge Track. While it makes a great connector or starting point, the trail is also quite pretty on its own. It can be muddy in spots but it isn’t quite as technical or challenging as some of the more remote trails in the area. You'll still have some roots and mud to navigate but nothing that presents too much of a challenge.
