Waitakere Dam Walk
Cascade Kauri Regional Park Auckland
30 Minute Drive from Auckland CBD
1.5 Hour to the Dam and Back
A nice kid friendly walk along a paved drive to the Historic Dam. Make sure to stop by the big Kauri on the way down. Be prepared for an Uphill struggle on the way back. There is a few tracks that start down there including the Tramline Track. Be sure to bring a few sandwiches for a picnic on the Dam.
The walk begins on Scenic Drive, 7km north of the Piha Road/Scenic Drive intersection, or 1.5km past Mountain Road, at the large car park on the left.
