In Motueka, take Old Wharf Road eastwards. Parking area on right after ca. 700 metres. Alternatively, take Wharf Road off roundabout on SH60 and turn immediately into small reserve on the left, before causeway.
An easy but thoroughly pleasing loop and highly variable walk around the Motueka Inlet. Includes grassy areas, boardwalks, shady paths beneath the trees, the causeway across the inlet and, in the NW corner, a maze-like network of paths that the dcogs love to explore. An information board on the east side of the inlet names all the hills on the ranges opposite. For a variation, complete the loop by walking along the grassy reserve behind the beachfront.
