Petone Foreshore to Maymorn

View Map

From the foreshore at Petone through riverside parkland, the first section of the ride follows the popular Hutt River Trail.  This family-friendly section is perfect for a casual ride, or as an enjoyable warm up before the more technical forested section.

Some of the earliest stories of New Zealand's cultural history are told along the way.  Riders pass both the sites of great Maori pa (fortified villages) and early European settlements.  The Petone Settlers Museum and Boulcoutt's Farm incident site bear witness to the hardiness and volatility of two peoples learning to live alongside each other.

Eventually leaving the riverbank at Te Marua, riders follow a short road section to Tunnel Gully which marks the second part of the trail.
