“A varied and scenic walkway that winds from Okiato to Russell through native bush and along wetland flats.”— Kristen Arendt
The walkway can be broken up into four stages that can either be done consecutively (for those looking for a longer hike) or individually (for hikers wanting a shorter outing). Visit the Bay of Islands Walkway Trust's website to download a printable guide and map for more information on the different sections of the walkway.
The Okiato to Russell Walkway can be joined with the Paihia to Opua Walkway for a nice day hike. Ferry services make it possible to connect the two walkways for a nice loop.
