From Paekakariki the Escarpment trail climbs steeply with many steps, through bush and mostly in open and exposed areas, and across two suspension bridges. Good views of Kapiti may be had. Then a steep descent To Pukerua Bay. The length of this section is 10km.

At this point the aged and infirm may consider taking the train back to Paekakariki. There I am told is coffee.

The second section will take us from Pukerua Bay to Plimmerton on the Te Harakeke and Tua Tapu trails. The Tua Tapu trail climbs to about 100 m. I estimate the length of this section to be 10 km.

Return to Paekakariki using the train.
