Description

This track provides an interesting alternative to Cannon Point Road. It can be ridden either up or down, though down is much more fun.

As the name suggests, this track zig-zags its way up the hill, in a series of quite steep sections punctuated by tight hairpin turns.

From the top of this track, turn left (southwest) up the Cannon Point Walkway to reach the Cannon Point Trig.

Near the bottom of the track, next to a farm gate, there is a gentle shortcut that connects with Cannon Point Road.

The following video was taken going downhill towards Upper Hutt.

Getting there

Starts from a small plateau 0.5km up the Cannon Point Road track. The start is clearly sign-posted.

Ends with a T-intersection with Cannon Point Walkway, less than 0.2km northeast of the Cannon Point Trig.

Length

1.69km
