You could take a picnic to eat on the grass. And if you enjoy mountain bike riding, then this is an option too. Be prepared for dog walkers (dogs on-leash).
This shady bush walk is suitable for hot summer days or misty rain days. The native bush includes nikau palms, young kauri trees and ponga tree ferns. The Kaipatiki Stream runs through the reserves.
This track is now open and has no problem with Kauri Dieback.
We started our walk from Glenfield Road. MAP

Comments on Eskadale Reserve Bush Walk
Can you tell me where can I see Kauri in the Eskdale bush. Are they mature trees?
As I stated in this post “The native bush includes nikau palms, young kauri trees and ponga tree ferns.” I am planning to go back to document this walk at some stage this year. Having done numerous walks since February, I am sorry I do not remember exactly where the kauri trees are.
I got this response from John Gillon… Cheers Helen
Hi Helen. Yes I’m very aware about how neglected Eskdale Bush is, but whenever I raise it, other projects are prioritised in front.
But when it eventually goes ahead, it is likely that we will be closing some tracks and creating other new ones.
Kaipatiki Project do some work in the western end of the park, but I’m not aware of any active volunteer groups in the rest of the park. If Mr Wasson is interested in getting more active and involved in the setting up of a volunteer group, then he is welcome to contact me about that [email protected]
