Starting at the Taste Trail car park head off towards the airport and follow the signs for the Perimeter Track. After you've done a loop, you'll come out on Bolt Road, turn right back towards the airport and the car park. A great trail away from cars and great views of the bay and the mountains.

A delightful little loop, good if you need to kill time at the airport!

Nice flat run on various surfaces. The northern edge of the run (along the golf course) gets boggy during the winter months. Great viewing spots for aviation enthusiasts.

A nice flat loop. Perfect for a recovery walk on a rainy day!
