- The track links Mangaone South Road with Mangaone North Road. Mangaone South Road runs off Ngatiawa Road, 8 km south-east from Waikanae. Mangaone North Road runs off Te Horo Hautere Cross Road from Te Horo, 9 km north of Waikanae.
Mangaone Walkway follows an old bush tramway in low hill country east of Waikanae. It was historically known as Reikorangi Track. The southern half follows the Waikanae River through Kaitawa Scenic Reserve, which protects previously milled podocarp forest. Streams at the southern end are usually easy to ford, but expect to get wet feet. The northern section crosses farmland, following a farm road for part of the distance.
The track is easy and well-formed and suitable for people of most ages and fitness levels.
