“A short urban trail to the Mt. Victoria Lookout overlooking Wellington.”— Joan Pendleton
As of May 2017....
The Lookout Walkway to Wellington's Mt. Victoria Lookout starts in the center of Wellington at the east end of Courtney Pl./Majorbanks St. This is a footpath entrance to a forested city park.
The Lookout Walkway climbs steadily through a relatively thick forest for the first .4 miles. Glimpses of Wellington and the harbor below can be seen. After the first .4 miles, the trail comes out of the forest and follows a road for the last .6 miles to Mt. Victoria Lookout. Along the way, purple blazes will guide your way to the top.
Spectacular 360-degrees views of Wellington and its harbor can be seen from Mt. Victoria Lookout.
