Hutt Valley, Wellington, New Zealand
Ridgeline connection between the northern and southern segments of ECNZ pylon road.
Bike and Foot
This tracks rolls along the ridgeline between Moore Valley and the Hutt Valley, passing Mount Ken along the way. Mount Ken is roughly the northern-most point shown on the map, located about 0.8km from that end of the track.
Most of the road consists of rolling hills, with gradients between 10% and 15%.
Just to the west of Mount Ken there is a 0.15km long alternative route that takes a short-cut across a bend in the track, as shown on the map.
For a bit of adrenalin try the Wilkie Firebreak, the top of which is located about 0.6km from the western end of this road.
Since this is a secondary road the surface is generally a bit rougher than ECNZ pylon road, though that just makes it more interesting.
The eastern end connects to the northern segment of ECNZ pylon road.
