Kiwiriki Track – Port FitzRoy

The Kiwiriki Track is a 4 hour walk, suitable for people with good fitness, through moderate to high level back country.

The track continues on from Bush’s Beach Track. It follows the same original riding track to a junction with Line W Track (30 min), then descends and crosses Coffin’s Creek travelling through lowland forest remnants of pūriri, nīkau, kohekohe and concentrations of kōwhai and pōhutukawa on the coast. The track climbs steadily and follows the dividing ridge before veering right and dropping steeply to the valley floor and sign-posted junction (1.5 h), leading to a 15-minute walk to the head of Kiwiriki Bay. The main track crosses Kiwiriki Stream and climbs through the valley and central ridge to meet Forest Rd at Maungapiko (1.5 h)
