Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The drive into the start of this track was spectacular as it is on hard-packed gravel roads that meander around the Whanganui Inlet. At low tide it is mainly mud-flats with channels creating interesting patterns while at hightide the reflection of light is magical. The walk itself is a steady climb up a disused 4 wheel drive track before getting to the gruntier section - the 20 minute scramble over rocks & through sub-alpine grasses, mosses etc. This last hard bit is definitely worth it as the view over the Whanganui Inlet & beyond to the Tasman Sea is truly stunning. The walk back down was a bit tricky as it had rained the day before so the ground was a bit slippery so be prepared with sturdy tramping boots.
Recommend you take walking pole(s), plenty of water & a light lunch as well as wet weather gear (in case the rain comes in). Check out the DOC information about this trail.
