A climb up from the Hutt Valley to Boulder Hill.

Overview

Features: Fall Colors — Views [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Leashed

Description [Suggest Changes]

The track starts from Belmont Regional Park's Dry Creek entrance, off State Highway 2.

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.
