Discover walks and waterways, reserves and rock gardens on a day-long trail from the Mountain Fountain at Parnell's Holy Trinity Cathedral to the summit of Maungawhau and Mt Eden Village.

Find out how the city has developed, and look at issues related to intensification and the protection of green space in Auckland.

You can choose the whole walk (about four hours) or join us partway.

Reasonable fitness and sturdy footwear are recommended. Bring water and lunch to eat in the grounds of Highwic House (optional entry inside the House will cost $8).

The Outer Link bus connects the start/end points and midway locations.

More information and a map of the walk with approximate times is available on the Friends of Maungawhau website.

You can also read about the Mt Eden rock forests on the New Zealand Geographic website.
