The 4WD coastline track continues from Karori Rock west towards Cable Bay. The track gets rougher making cycling more difficult - it may be easier to stow the bike behind a bush and walk. The area is still popular with 4WD vehicles, mainly fishermen, and on a fine weekend you are unlikely to be alone even in this remote spot.

There is the occasional stream crossing on the coastal track, but the water is rarely more than a few centimetres deep.

You can follow the coastline all the way to Cable Bay, where you must then go inland.
