Description

This is a difficult track that winds its way along a ridge to the south of Belmont Trig. The surface consists of either smooth clay or rough rocks though there is a short pleasant, forest section.

Track is commonly started from the summit of Belmont Trig. From there, the track quickly drops 390m in altitude down to the floor of the Horokiwi Valley.

As with many hills in the area, this one gets gradually steeper as it approaches the valley. In this case, that means an average grade of 15% for the upper sections and more like 25% for the lower sections. Consequently, with a rough rock and clay surface, the last 0.4km section just above Baked Beans Bend is either a challenging descent or a demanding climb depending on which way you're going.
