This walk follows the Allen, Sadgrove, and Kerr Taylor farms, with a stop at the Kerr Taylor farmhouse 'Alberton.'
The walk describes the devastation of Ōwairaka due to quarrying. For cyclists who want to avoid the cone on the trail, there is a bike path along Mt Albert Road. Walkers may either surround the cone by road or follow the tracks.
