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.

Recent track re-openings by Auckland Council include the Mt Donald McLean Walk at the top of Mt Donald McLean and the Slip Track from the Arataki Visitor Centre, enabling a longer walk via Slip, Pipeline and Beveridge Tracks.

Most of the Hunua Regioanl Park tracks are also closed pending the completion of kauri protection measures.
