Time: 2 hr

This short but challenging track can be linked with the Waimoku Track to make a loop that returns to Lucy’s Gully. The Sefton Track begins by the carpark where it crosses an unbridged stream then winds steeply uphill for 2 km before meeting with the Waimoku Track junction. Turn left and head downhill to return to the car park. The stream crossing can become impassable after heavy rain.

To get there:

The Sefton Track begins in Lucy’s Gully. From New Plymouth, follow Devon Street West south, continuing on coastal SH45, 5 km past Oakura. Turn off at the signposted access road.

Ranking: 8/10

Solid footpath but very exposed and challenging with a heavy pack! More of a rock climb in some sections.
