Description

Steep short-cut from Cottle Park Drive down to Stratton Street, or vice versa. It is about half the length of taking the sealed road.

Parts of the track are very steep, so may require some walking if ascending. Conversely, the steep bits are great fun when descending.

Getting there

The top of the track is through a small wooden gate (marked with a horse shoe) on a corner near the top of Cottle Park Drive. The bottom of the track is about half way along Stratton Street, and also has a small wooden gate. Each entrance is marked with Greater Wellington Regional Council signs.

Other notes

If descending from Cottle Park Drive, watch out for the gate about half way down. (It seems generally left shut.) Also note that the track appears to be frequented by pony-trekkers, so try to not scare the horses. Horse traffic makes the trail surface bumpy in places.
