Getting to know the Hutt River Trail
The Hutt River Trail is a combined effort between:
- Hutt City Council
- Greater Wellington Regional Council
- Upper Hutt City Council
- Hutt Valley Rotary Clubs
Mostly flat, the Hutt River Trail currently runs from Hikoikoi Reserve (the Hutt River Mouth) to Birchville in Upper Hutt. It’s entirely located on the Hutt River berm, along the tops of the stopbanks.
In Lower Hutt the trail is continuous on both sides of the river, except for alongside Manor Park Golf Course. The Hutt River Trail Committee is looking to finish this section of the trail in the near future.
The Hutt River Trail offers different surfaces to walk or ride on, including gravel paths and sealed surfaces. Using the different bridges along the trails there are a number of loops that can be ridden or walked/ran.
Finding the Hutt River Trail
You can access the trail anywhere along the Hutt River between the Silverstream Bridge and the Hutt River Mouth, except for alongside the Manor Park golf course.
What’s on offer?
- Flat walking tracks – great for riding, walking or running
- Natural surroundings – including grassed areas, reserves, willows and natives
The Hutt River Trail is open to the public 24 hours a day.
