Starting from the entrance at Cornish rd, head up the track. Very easy to follow as it meanders up the stream. After about 2.8km, take the signposted left turn and begin heading up the hill to the Trig. It climbs up the hill through the native bush.
There are multiple ways to the top, this map/track takes the right hand option at the junction at about 3.5km. Once taking the right, ,continue on the well marked track all the way to the top where you can enjoy views out to the West Coast as well as down the harbour. Head back down the same way, or continue to explore the many tracks in Belmont Regional Park.
There are currently no members to show for this trail.

At the end of Cornish Rd, just off SH2. Take a left just after the Petone overbridge. If coming from the north head up and over McKenzie Ave and then down Pito-One Rd.
Plenty of parking in the trail-head vicinity. Petone Station very close as well.

Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
Korokoro Stream if you're desperate, but I would say no.
Pretty exposed up on top in poor weather. Track should be adequate majority of the time.
General trip hazards, very narrow in places so oncoming mountain bikers are a hazard.
