Flowers Track makes its way up Whitewash Head via a narrow, steep and winding path. Take care if the track is wet as it can be very slippery in places.
Be sure to stop and take in the stunning view over Sumner, as far out as the Southern Alps on a clear day.
Eventually the trail will meet Scarborough Track which leads into Nicholson Park.
From Nicholson Park, why not join up with the Taylor's Mistake Track and head down to Taylor's Mistake beach.
