This is an easy track - easy to access from the city. Easy to drive up or walk up. On a great day, you can see forever. Gives you a great glimpse of all of Wellington.

We drove up the hill and parked in the free car park. It was a Sunday. The view of Wellington is great, you can see everything. Well worth a look!
