Name

Colonial Knob

Location

Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand

Overview

Gravel road climb to the summit of Colonial Knob.

Grade

Intermediate

Access

Bike and Foot

Description

This is a demanding climb, gaining 400m in altitude up a gravel road that is quite steep in places. The effort is rewarded with spectacular views over Porirua and the surrounding areas.

Getting there

Start from a steel barrier halfway along Raiha Street, at a sign that describes the area.

From a biking perspective the track ends just after reaching the summit of Colonial Knob. The track continues across farmland, but it is closed to bikes - see Colonial Knob South.

Other notes

There are plans for development of a mountain bike park on Colonial Knob, led by the Colonial Knob Supporters Incorporated. This development follows Porirua City Council's purchase of land on Colonial Knob in mid 2009.
