Description

A cruisy and mostly gentle entry to Puke Ariki and Belmont Regional Park, including access to a variety of other tracks.

At the highest point of the track, there are a couple of grassy rolling hills. The track heads straight up the hills, which can be quite steep. There is an alternative route if this proves too steep.

The easier alternative is to follow a 0.75km long enhanced sheep track that sidles around the eastern side of the hills. When heading north, follow the sheep track about 40m past the sign that says "Please use poled track". The sheep track is narrow, but more-or-less flat, so much easier than the hills it bypasses. The sheep track rejoins the main track between a bunker and an green electrical transformer box at the intersection with Round Knob so if heading south then veer off to the left along the sheep track at that point rather than going up the hill.

The climbs are hard work, but the views from the hill tops are spectacular and the descents are great fun. At the northern end of the track, there is an airstrip.
