Auckland Area Track Information

Here is a link to the official Auckland Council Parks and tracks information, including track closures - Auckland Parks and Tracks, also with information on other regional parks and tracks.

Waitakere Track Closures

Most Waitakere tracks are closed for a long time as a result of attempts trying to reduce kauri dieback spread and protect healthy kauri areas. Some tracks in forested areas have work underway or planned work to upgrade them to a kauri safe status, but this is significant work with a long timeframe that will take many years to implement. For some tracks, there are currently no plans for reopening in the medium or longer term.

View the Auckland Council track plan issued in June 2019.

At the end of 2018, Kitekite Track was reopened following significant upgrade work.

Early on 2019 the Goldies Bush tracks were reopened by DOC
