Started on Wadestown Road at the dog exercise area, as there is parking there.
It’s a pretty steep climb up the hill. You climb around 120 metres over a 500 meter walk, so that is a pretty tiring climb. As you go up you’ll see four or five intersections, but ignore them as they will just take you back down. Keep going until you hit the actual Northern Walkway.
Once you are up there, then fairly easy going along the Northern Walkway. Just before the end there is a steep path down and then you pass behind Premier House before you can come down either on St Marys Road or Grant Road.
Once down on the road, then a small hike back up Wadestown Road to where the car is!
A nice scenic sub-hour walk for a lunch break.Tags: DPF, Te Ahumairangi Hill, walks, Wellington
