Trig V is a spectacular harbourside alternative to the Crater Rim Walkway for a short section above Governors Bay.

This gentle, undulating track takes you along the ridge of the Port Hills with breathtaking views across the water to the ranges above Diamond Harbour. Create a 30-40 minute loop with the Crater Rim Walkway or for those with good fitness and agility, you could head down to Governors Bay via Watlings Track - look for the sign when you arrive at the carpark.

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.
