This trail is flat except for a short rise to Te Rauparaha Reserve and the Motuhara Tramway and Tunnel. The pedestrian bridge over State Highway 1 also needs to be negotiated. The trail can be walked in approximately 2 hours excluding two sites, Taua Tapu Track and Taupō Wetland.
Both are about 2-3 kms away. The part of the Taua Tapu Track, which remains a walking track, continues for another 1.5 kms beyond the end of the road. It is steep and graded as a medium to challenging.
