“A climb up from the Hutt Valley to Boulder Hill.”— Jonathan Moulds
From the car park, you climb up the short zig-zag track next to the information board, and then turn right up the 4x4 road. It is then a 400m climb to the summit of Boulder Hill. Parts of the track are steep, especially towards the summit, though there is a flatish section in the middle through farmland.
There is plenty of variety in terms of track surface and gradient, ranging from a well-formed gravel road on the lower sections, through to the grassy 4x4 track in the middle, and ending with a barely-defined singletrack for the final section to the summit.
