Descends from the end of McKeening Road and intersects with the Braidwood Track near Boulder Beach.

The track offers great views over the Boulder Beach and the Otago Peninsula coastline, though at times it can get somewhat overgrown and difficult to follow. Forms a great route when combined with the Karetai Track and/or Paradise Track.

Mountain bikes are permitted - just be courteous to other trail users and respect the mountain bikers code.

Access Info

Access is generally from the end of McKeening Road (just off of Highcliff Road), though note that larger vehicles are generally unable to turn around at the end of the road, and will need to park further back.

Alternatively, the track can be accessed from the bottom via the Braidwood Track near Boulder Beach.
