      Just watch out for the 'sand trap'. Althoughit is a good gravel track there is a spot where there is some loose sand, it'll catch the unwary.

      This coastal track goes through approx 1.5km of private land south of Pencarrow Lodge entrance (lake kohongatera). There are signs at the north end that appear to suggest walkers and bikers are ok to go through. So be courteous and respectful to keep access open.
