The walkway is well worth doing for people who want a geographical sense of the Auckland isthmus. The highlights are the Auckland Domain, Mt Eden and One Tree Hill. There are plenty of leafy suburbs to mitigate the sunburn if you walk in summer.

This is a fantastic walk from start to finish and you get to see so many different part of the cities and going up both Mt Eden and One Tree Hill Domain and of course the Auckland DOmain and cornwall park. It does take a while and is about 20K from start to finish so be prepared. My only complaint and the only reason it doesnt get 5 stars is that it is very poorly marked. We really needed to use All Trails with GPS to make sure we didnt take a wrong turn in the residential areas

We really enjoyed this walk as it gave us a greater opportunity to enjoy and explore Auckland. We followed the recommendation of a previous Tripadvisor post (https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g255106-d257379-r636325420-Coast_to_Coast_Walkway-Auckland_Central_North_Island.html) and took the train across to Onehunga and commenced the walk on the western side. I am pleased we did this because it meant we finished back at Viaduct Harbour (where out accommodation was situated) and we got the transport options out of the way first. Plus, I think the walk would be tougher the other way around! The start of the walk is a little inconspicuous and there isnt a sign highlight this is the start, but it look for Normans Hill Road, opposite the waterpark starts, and you are on your way. The signage along the route is a little limited in places and I suggest having a map of the route beforehand and use the gps on your mobile phone when needed. We stopped for some brekky and a coffee at a lovely little cafe called "No 117 Cafe" in Trafalgar St (just past the top of Normans Hill Rd). It was well worth the stop because the service and food was excellent. There are good toilets mid-journey in Cornwall Park and again in Auckland Domain where we stopped for a refreshment at the Wintergarden Cafe. Take sunscreen and a hat and enjoy the day.

Wife and I went on the walk from Auckland Princes wharf to Ohnehunga. The walk covers some great places; Aleaxandra Park, Cornwall Park for example. Lack of upkeep finds quite a few signs that showed you the route once when the route was first made; a lot of signs are gone; be prepared to take a phone with maps - getting lost is easy. Takes a few hours; take water. Toilets are fairly frequently available; shops are nearby at times.
