About this Event

Kiwis have #gottogetout!

Got To Get Out arranges many FREE outdoor events, to get the communities of NZ active / outdoors / healthy and exploring nature.

For this adventure, The Got To Get Out Auckland Adventurers invite you and your dog(!) to Hike Kitekite Falls Track in Waitakere Ranges!

This DOG FIRENDLY easy grade hike is arranged by our volunteer community leaders with the sole purpose of getting the community outdoors, active, and connected.

We will carpool to track start so please make a post in the Facebook event if you need a ride from Ponsonby and we will sort it out!

NOTE: Our trips are currently capped at 10 people for now - so please make sure you get a ticket, and only come if you have a ticket. If you need to cancel, please do so in enough time that someone else can take your spot.

Details as follows:

This walk is a must-do when you are in Piha. It's an easy, gradual climb with lots to see on the way. There are some tricky stream crossings, so be careful as you make your way across.

The route has formed gravel tracks and boardwalks throughout and the gradual climb to the famous Kitekite Falls is manageable for people with moderate fitness.

Near the falls there are two stream crossings that take some agility and good balance. Bring a walking stick if you’re not sure about this.

This path takes you up into beautiful forest area, with a spectacular waterfall as a reward for your efforts.

Mobile reception along the route is not always reliable.
