Day 342, Sunday 29 July 2018
Long Road runs south from Bethells Road. It’s a twisty sealed road, but it isn’t very long. It ends at a locked gate, with an old forest road forming Long Road Track beyond. The track doesn’t go anywhere in particular; it connects up with Smyth Ridge Track and Ridge Road track, but these are closed to prevent the spread of kauri dieback disease, and part of Long Road Track is closed too. There are some nice views over the Waitakere Ranges, and access to Pae O Te Rangi summit, although I didn’t go quite that far. The track is steep and in places muddy.
Distance travelled: 64 km. Total distance so far: 42,877 km
