This is an excellent walk with views overlooking Waihī Beach, up the Coromandel and along the coast eastwards. With excellent parking and a well-formed track, this is a must-do during your visit to Waihī Beach.

Trig Trail to Lookout

This trail is 3-kilometres return - about a 45-minute walk, with some steps and steep bits. The majority of the walk is in the bush so this walk is suitable to do at any time of day. At the top, you will enjoy a spectacular view of Waihī Beach, up the Coromandel coast and east across the Bay of Plenty.

Forest Loop via Trig Trail

The new forest loop takes approximately 90 minutes to complete, returning via the Trig Trail. While the trail is quite steep in some areas, the stunning views along the track make it all worth it. The top section is currently unshaded due to recent pine forest harvesting, so don’t forget to bring enough water and sunscreen. 

The Water Reservoir Loop

The Loop is an easy 20-minute walk around the old Waihī Beach reservoir. The walk is mostly flat, with a few inclines.


To get there:

Drive up Pacific Road, go left at the top, park the car in the water reservoir car park. The Water Reservoir Loop start is on the right of the reservoir. The Trig Walk branches off the Loop track near the bridge. Dogs and bicycles can enjoy this beautiful trail too! Click here for a map of both walks.
