About 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 (at 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.

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 used for walking, running and mountain biking.

You can access the trail anywhere along the Hutt River between the Hutt River Mouth and the Silverstream Bridge.
