16 July 2018: Restricted access
There is no access to the Coromandel Coastal Walkway and Mountain Bike Track from the western side due to a road washout in the Fletcher Bay campground.
Both tracks are still accessible from the Stony Bay end, however walkers will need to plan a return trip on the same day, as there is no accommodation available at Fletcher Bay due to the road damage.
Located in the north of the Coromandel Peninsula, this walkway traverses farmland and coastal forest between Fletcher Bay and Stony Bay. It follows an easy grade and offers views of the Pinnacles, Great Barrier Island and Cuvier Island.
Coromandel Walkway links with other tracks, such as the Coromandel mountain bike track, to form alternative routes.
Travel north from the town of Colville on the Coromandel Peninsula and begin the walkway from either its northern end, in Fletcher Bay, or from its southern end, in Stony Bay. There are Department of Conservation campgrounds at each end of the track.
