Makara Peak, Wellington, New Zealand
Main track up to the summit of Makara Peak.
Bike and Foot
With a moderate grade, this is a popular way to reach the summit of Makara Peak.
The bottom 0.5km is the steepest, after which the gradient becomes a bit more mellow. Much of the track surface has worn down to rough bare rock, just to make the climb a little more challenging.
This is a one way track going up to the summit. New signage to this effect will be erected soon.
Aratihi (Ah-rah-tee-hee) is a New Zealand MÄori word that means:
- ara (noun) way, path, lane, passageway, track, course.
- tihi (noun) summit, top, peak, point.
Starts just above Tower 16, at the western end of Missing Link.
