Belmont Regional Park, Wellington, New Zealand
Bike and Foot
Much of this track is a cross-country trek across paddocks, following the occasional marker pole. The final section down to Kilmister, starting at a power pylon, is on a rough 4x4 track.
Overall this is a very steep track, which drops 290m from top to bottom, so probably best done in the downhill direction from Murphys to Kilmister. The main descent has an average grade of 21%, with some parts being even steeper.
At the intersection with Kilmister the track crosses a creek at a log weir. Provided the water level is low, the weir can be ridden across.
From the summit of Boulder Hill, proceed about 0.3km down Murphys to a sign posted intersection. Head down a ridge towards the right (the middle ridge ends with a gully), following the markers. The bottom of the track meets the lowest point of Kilmister.
