It is easy to overestimate fitness levels, there is hardly anywhere on Waiheke that is not hilly and some of our walks are extremely hilly. Just about every walk will have some steep, sometimes prolonged, steep sections.
Each walk has been given an approximate (very loose) time and grading. The grading reflects the type of terrain and walking surfaces you can expect.
Easy - possibly road, simple track, may have some narrow or muddy stretches.
Medium – off-road walking track, possibly narrow or muddy stretches and steep sections.
Hard – mostly unformed, maybe tricky underfoot, prolonged steep hills but well worth the effort.
Harder – more of above!
We err on the side of caution with description and finishing times for walks.
