Highway to Health, Whitehead

(0 reviews)

This seaside walk goes from the Yacht Club to the split in the paths just beyond Sunshine House. It measures exactly 2 Kms. and is marked both at Kms. and half Kms. Due to its “there and back” format walkers are offered measured walks ranging from one to four kilometres.

This walk is part of the Highway to Health Scheme – a simple and innovative scheme which aims to encourage people of all ages to walk for leisure and good health. It uses pole signs at one kilometre intervals on an established route.
