Is this Auckland's best nature walk?

I'm going to cut to the chase: the Ōmanawanui Track in the Waitākere Ranges is Auckland's single greatest walk.

That's right, not "one of", not "among", not "up there with", but unimpeachably THE. SINGLE. GREATEST.

Yet somehow, I swear most Aucklanders have never heard of it.
