Runner Notes

This is a heavily used bike track, with tight corners so make sure you keep your wits about you as it is not uncommon to come across bikes coming the other way. Be polite and share the track, and everyone will be great.

Description

This two-way, dual-use track was built to enhance bike access through Polhill Reserve along with Transient and Clinical Trail).

The track broadly follows the contours around the top of Polhill Reserve, producing an overall gentle gradient up from the northern end though with some somewhat steeper undulations along the way. About 0.2 km from the northern end, the track crosses Dopers. At around the halfway point, there is a side track that goes to a lookout.

Most of the track is under mature forest, providing a sense of isolation even though the track would have spectacular views over Wellington if not for the trees in the way. However, the views can be seen from a couple of places: the lookout and a short clearing towards the southern end (where the power lines pass overhead).

Flora & Fauna

Mature forest and regenerating native bush. Plenty of native birds, common to spot Tui, Bellbirds and the odd saddleback.
