For New Zealand’s most populated and urbanised city, there is also a fair amount of outdoor spaces for relaxing or outdoor lifestyles. One favourite place to trail run or walk is the Hillary Trail close-ish to the city.
The Hillary Trail is a spectacular multi-day tramping trip through native forest and along the wild coast of the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. Beginning and ending not far from metropolitan Auckland, this self-guided 77km trail is a challenging adventure. (Auckland Council).
These images are from an editorial/ fine art shoot at Whatipu on the Hillary Trail with collective shooter Ethan Lowry and brand ambassador Tim Richards. Mother nature really did treat us and if you want to run the track at an event- then you can with our friends over at Hillary Trail run. The editorial is over here by the way- along with some behind the scenes here.
