Belmont Regional Park, Wellington, New Zealand
Steep connector from OCR Belmont to Hill Road. Shared Trail
Bike and Foot - Uphill Horse Trail
After a short, steep, climb from OCR Belmont, this track winds its way down through Sweetacres reserve. There are a couple of particularly steep parts - near the summit, and the initial section just above Hill Road.
From the upper grassy section there are great views over the Hutt Valley and towards Wellington Harbour. But keep an eye on the track, as it is quite rough in places.
The lower sections pass through regenerating bush, with a few tight switchbacks to slow down your descent.
One end of the track is signposted on OCR Belmont as "Hill Road", about 1.5km from the end of Normandale Road - just before the top of Danzig.However can also access this via Bull-a Varde missing the step start to Sweetacres.
The other end of the track is on Hill Road, opposite the school and up hill a few metres.
