Hutt Valley, Wellington, New Zealand
Walking track from the western side of Maidstone Park.
Bike and Foot
This track meanders up a fairly steep ridge to the top of the hill overlooking Maidstone Park. The track surface is mostly firm gravel, through it is a bit rough in places.
At about the halfway point there's an intersection with Maidstone East. Just below this intersection there's a picnic table and, a few metres further down the hill, a bench seat conveniently placed to admire the view over Maidstone Park.
If you're looking to do a few runs down Maidstone DH, but don;t have a shuttle, then this is the most direct way to get from the bottom to the top of Maidstone DH. However, this track has lots of steps and a steep gradient, so expect a fair bit of pushing your bike up the hill.
Bottom in on Maidstone Park, next to the bottom of Maidstone DH and 50m south of the PÃ©tanque piste.
Although bikes are not prohibited, this track isn't really suitable for bikes since there are more than 80 steps along the way.
