Parks and recreation
Start at Whareroa Beach, follow signs to the Inland Track then branch off to ride alongside the stream to MacKays Crossing and back to the beach via the sealed Whareroa Road. Pass by new plantings, farm paddocks and wetlands plus the Tram Museum and WWII US Marine display.
The best loop runs north on the Coastal Track from Paekakariki through the dunes past historic pa sites and taking in great views to Kapiti Island. Return at Raumati South via the Inland Track with bigger climbs and descents, taller vegetation and views east to farmland, wetlands and the Akatarawa foothills. Watch out for pedestrians and horse riders and keep to the main track to avoid damage to the dunes.
