Mercer Bay Loop Track

Mercer Bay Loop Track

The highest cliffs (of up to 200 metres) of the Waitakere ranges are between Piha and Karekare near Mercer Bay. The Hillary Trail takes in part of the Mercer Bay Loop Track from which these pictures were taken. Above one sees the viewing platform, marked by a few people, and below is a photo from a little further North, showing the coastline to the South, with the Whatipu sands in the distance.
