Description

This track starts climbing immediately from the gate at the end of the sealed road. Following the orange discs on white poles the track climbs at a steady and comfortable gradient to the main intersection at a wooden gate just below the ridge. There is one gate to negotiate at about halfway up, and be sure to turn right at the intersection just after this. Enjoy the relative calm of this little valley because when you hit the ridge you will certainly feel any Northerly wind.

Getting there

The lower end of this track starts at the end of Parkvale Road (off main Karori road at Karori Mall). The track starts just past the block wall where there is a sign, gate and style. The top end is also well sign-posted at a gate and a style just below the main ridge.

Other notes

This is a good access to the newest single track section of lostworld. This is an active sheep and cattle farming area so leave all gates as you find them. There are styles at all the major gate crossings.
