“A well-maintained track that follows along the water from Paihia to Opua.”— Kristen Arendt
From here, the trail is well-marked and rolling. This section of the walkway has pleasant views over Veronica Channel toward Russell. After a few more small ups and downs, and a nice boardwalk section, the track ends at Opua.
Stop by the general store for snacks or refreshments before retracing your steps or continuing onto the Okiato to Russell Walkway. To continue onto the Okiato to Russell Walkway, take the ferry from Opua to Okiato on the Russell Peninsula. The ferry schedule can be found here.
