Coast to Coast Walkway information
Heading clear across the country from the Tasman to the Pacific (actually, that's only 16km), this walk encompasses One Tree Hill, Mt Eden, the Domain and the University, keeping as much as possible to reserves rather than city streets. You can do it in either direction: starting from the Viaduct Basin and heading south, it’s marked by yellow markers and milestones; heading north from Onehunga there are blue markers. We recommend catching the train to Onehunga, the least impressive trailhead, and finishing up at one of the Viaduct's bars. From Onehunga Station, take Onehunga Mall up to Princes St, turn left and pick up the track at the inauspicious park by the motorway.
