Anawhata was milled as part of Piha ‘s operation. A tramway was constructed from the Piha Mill to the bottom of the hill, to the bottom of the White Road. Indeed, the Marawhara Walk parallels the old stretch of the tramway. This was the route used by the little Dub generator, the A196. The incline ended near the homestead of Craw.

Pole Line Track and Quarry Track can take you downhill to the McKenzie and Forbes Lines, then to the Piha Valley Track. The Centennial Track, which takes you down rugged steps to the Piha Valley Track, is among Piha’s most emblematic tracks. At the peak of the Quarry and Centennial is the McElwain Lookout, a high-pitched structure. From here, you can look down to Piha over the interior of the Ranges.
