Hopefully a nice do-able fitness ride taking one up the Belmont hills from down in Petone and back via Belmont.

Nice climbing track, properly gravelled, good traction in today's conditions. Best suited to a hardtail I reckon. I hear this track has been significantly altered to be more family oriented and consequently a pretty legendary descent has been turned into something far less intimidating or fun. I think what's been done is good for those new to MTB and those who like to train like Spartans. Make sure you go up to the Korokoro Dam before going up Baked Beans, definitely a highlight in this beautiful valley.

Pretty good. Streams fairly high so not crossable without getting wet.
