Otara Track

Otara Track

Otara Track is a short (20 minute) hike over the point between Sailors Grave and remote Otara Bay. It is reasonably easy with a modest climb of 60 metres, helped by a number of short series of steps. There are good views of both bays crossing over the high point.

The track winds through recovering native forest. Although it is not obvious on the path, this includes kauri, with a boot-cleaning station at the start of the track. If there has been enough recent rain, there is a small waterfall next to the track on the final approach to Otara Bay.
