We love investigating our home area of Auckland, New Zealand Mercer Bay. One of our number one spots for end-of-the-week ventures is the Waitakere Ranges toward the west of the city. The ‘Waitaks’, as Aucklanders call the Ranges, is home to various shrub strolls and on the grounds that the reaches steeply ascend from the coast, many wild dark sand surf sea shores are clad in hedges as well.

One strolling track that joins the hedge and coast is the Mercer Bay Loop Track. This track is close to Piha Beach, the most notable and most active of the west coast surf sea shores. Piha has large surf (and perilous tears, so be careful while swimming) and an extraordinary bistro.
Mercer Bay Loop Track is gotten from Log Race Road, off Te Ahu Road, off West Coast Road (the fundamental street into Piha from Auckland).
The track is only a short one – the signs say it requires an hour yet we believe it’s more similar to 35 minutes. Despite the fact that assuming that you’re painfully slow difficultly you could take a piece longer – the last tough trudge is steep!
Getting go through the shrubbery, the track heads from the vehicle leave and towards the edge of the great precipices that fall down to the sea beneath, with glimpses north to Piha Beach. This coast is really desolate – come here when a westerly wind is blowing and you’ll have a ton of familiarity with it!
At the point when you jump out of the bramble, the perspectives down to the ocean are top-notch. The surf moving in is hypnotizing to watch, and you can see north the whole way to Muriwai Beach and south to the Manukau Harbor heads.

There are various post focuses along the part of the path that comes to the clifftop. It’s noteworthy, yet kindly don’t move over the obstructions onto the bluff edge to take a selfie! Truly, we saw somebody doing that and she was around 1 meter from the edge which is 40m or so over the water! Idiotic!
The remainder of the circle track heads back inland and up the slope to the vehicle’s left. Before you head uphill, however, try to come to the track a small piece more and look at the perspectives down to Mercer Bay. It’s a decent-looking ocean side!
The difficult trudge back to the carpark is hot and sweat-soaked. You could likewise pivot and return the manner in which you came assuming you’d like.
