Built by Porirua City Council, this shared use trail starts in Spicer Botanical Park, has a formal road crossing at Broken Hill Road, then climbs up to a termination high above Trash Palace. This trail will eventually connect directly to a new trail within the City of Wellington.
It is a two way trail so you can walk/run/ride back down again.
