Rimutuka Incline Details
Running from Kaitoke to Summit, the Rimutaka Rail Trail links with the DOC-managed Incline down to Cross Creek in the Wairarapa. A gently graded 18 km walk or mountain bike ride, the Trail features restored railway bridges and historic tunnels (take a torch). Enjoy swimming and fishing in the nearby Pakuratahi River and picnic or camp in the pleasant surrounds of Ladle Bend and Summit.
Toilets are located at the Kaitoke and Cross Creek entrances, at Summit and at the historic Cross Creek town site.
By car: Turn off SH2, 9km north of Upper Hutt. The carpark is 1km along a metal road. Or you can enter the Wairarapa end of the Rail Trail via Cross Creek Road (off Western Lake Road).
By bike: Check out the adjacent trails. A good route is to follow the Rimutaka Cycle Trail.
