Hakanoa Lake walk is always a good way to clear and mind and enjoy the outdoors. It's a 4.5 km round walk. Well worthwhile.

I live right off the lake and use this walkway daily in the summer. Its about 3km around the lake and just perfect for an afternoon run. Trail is well maintained and popular without being crowded. Great for my son and his balance bike.
