Expansive sea views from Signal Hill, entirely off road, Kēkerengū store for your finish coffee and cake

29.4 kilometers

120+ minutes

All off road, expansive views, Tirohanga Suspenion Bridge, Kēkerengū coffee and cake.

From Ward the trail is entirely off-road. You head south beside the highway before the trail meanders through farmland then follows the railway line south to Mirza Creek. After following the creek for a short distance, the trail winds uphill through cabbage trees, climbing 117m up to the top of Single Hill. From here you can see North up the coast to the Needles, or South towards Kaikoura. 


More winding trail takes you down the southern side of the Single Hill to the Waima River. The trail then winds along the coast and through the sand dunes to a suspension bridge over the Tirohaunga Stream, after which it runs along the seaward side of the railway line to Kekerengu.
