The Inland Track links Marahau to Wainui Bay via Pigeon Saddle on the Takaka - Ttaranui Road. Awapoto Hut to Pigeon Saddle Time: 3 hr Distance: 5 km Beyond Awapoto Hut the track steepens then eases again before finally descending steeply to the road at Pigeon Saddle. Pigeon Saddle to Wainui carpark Time: 2 hr 25 min Distance: 8 km The track climbs slightly, passing a turn-off to a good viewpoint. Travel is then fairly level to the short climb up Gibbs Hill. Beyond Gibbs Hill are the best views in the whole park as the track descends, steeply at first, to the saddle on the WainuiWhariwharangi section of the Abel Tasman Coast Track. At this saddle, the track forks and an easy 45-minute descent begins to the Wainui car park. No dogs.
