The Mahia Peninsula scenic walk offers visitors excellent views of the Wairoa coast & reserve.

This reserve is located 7 km south of Mahia Beach up the narrow and winding Kinikini Road A 3.5 km loop track walks you through one of the best examples of semi coastal forest on the North Island east coast.
