For this trail it is advised to bring your own food and plenty of liquids to stay hydrated as there is no water filling stations on the journey so be prepared to sweat. The Makara beach is sheltered from the southerly winds but when up in the hill tops there is often high force gale winds to watch out for. The trail is closed for the month of August due to lambing season and for gun emplacement replacements as well, the trip will roughly take 4 hours altogether so be sure to not make plans around the finishing time as it can take longer.
