The Skyline Walk is one of the best walks in Wellington as you get a near continual view of not just the city and harbour, but also of the Western coastline.
The 12 km walk starts at Johnsonville and finishes at the South end of Karori at the saddle of Makara Road.
There is an initial climb up to Mt Kaukau, but after that it is a fairly easy walk to Karori (with the exception of one further steep climb). Very well signposted and the track varies from 4WD paths to narrow goat like paths. Fun when someone comes the other way!
The continual views make this a great walk. Took just over three and a half hours.
This was walk no 11 of the 13 walks over summer. Just two to go.Tags: DPF, walks, Wellington, Wellington Walks
