Explore Upper Hutt walkways with over 80 attractive parks and gardens with majestic trees, and picnic and play areas throughout the city.
The boundaries of Upper Hutt extend from Silverstream Bridge in the south-west to the summits of the Rimutaka Range in the east and Akatarawa Range in the north.
Please note: The Cannon Point walkway is currently closed from Tulsa Park (private land access unavailable). Access is still available to the Cannon Point trig from Birchville Dam (entrance via Bridge Road). For more information, please contact Greater Wellington Regional Council.
We have put together the best of our walkways in one handy booklet, called Explore Upper Hutt. Discover more than 20 different walkways in our city, and see the best Upper Hutt has to offer.

- Tell someone where you plan to walk and approximately how long it will take.
- Wear suitable warm clothing and strong footwear.
- Be particularly careful regarding fires, cigarettes, and dogs. Many of the tracks are in forestry areas.
