Summerhill has many kilometres of amazing scenic walking trails just waiting to be explored. The various sections take in areas of pastures and forest walks to native bush and creek crossings. From the car park, there is an easy ridgeline walk through pasture to the adjoining Papamoa Hills Regional Park, this has to be seen to really appreciate the absolute beauty of this amazing coastline and surrounding area. There are other walks that are conditioned for amblers, runners and persons of intermediate fitness, and often shared with mountain bikes, so please be considerate to each other.
