Watlings Track requires some surefootedness as it takes you down a steep, bouldery, bush-covered gully. It makes a wonderful contrast to the usual open landscapes of the Port Hills. You can connect with the Bush Road Track via Duke Street, a short track heading off to the right as you make your way downhill.
Continue on Watlings Track and shortly after, you’ll pop out onto an open spur where you can choose to follow the South Boundary back to Faulkners Track or take Titoki Track down to Governors Bay where there are options for food and refreshments.
The tracks in Ohinetahi are managed by the Summit Road Society(external link). You can find maps and more information about the area on their website.
