Mt Climie Challenge
Pakuratahi Forest | Intermediate |12km return
Follow the Mt Climie access road from the top car park up to the ridgeline. This is a 6km slog uphill in low gear, but the views from the top are worth it, and there are a number of fun downhill and BMX tracks which shoot off the side of the track on the way the back down. Most of these will bring you out on rewarded with great views of the Hutt Valley, Wellington and the Wairarapa on a clear day.
Alternatively, you can return the same way, making sure to take care and look out for vehicles, walkers and other cyclists on the road.
Food and drink can be purchased nearby at Te Marua Dairy and Stonestead Devonshire Teas which are located in Plateau Village.
