Women Want Adventure are hosting another New Zealand Hiking Meet Up! Although an Australian community, we love our New Zealand sisters and aim to introduce a Women Want Adventure network for women in New Zealand.

This Meet Up is a great way to connect with like-minded women. Try a new trail. Make a new friend. We’re all about connecting and supporting women to step out of their comfort zones and get into nature for their 'girly' catch ups.

This hike takes you from Bethells Road car park (where we meet) and crosses the Waitakere River by footbridge, rising along a graded section, to superb views of lagoons, dunes and the west coast surf down to O’Neill's Bay, where you can return along Bethells Beach.

The track climbs steeply then follows along the cliff-top with a fantastic view of the ocean. The track exits through a farm valley and another steep climb to Constable Road. Care is needed on this track, which traverses coastal cliffs and is uneven and muddy in places. Please make sure you were sturdy shoes.
