With tracks galore for both mountain bikers and walkers there's something here for everyone.

The Dry Creek Waterfall is beautiful, but be ready for wet feet on this 1 hour return walk.

If you walk 5 minutes along the Belmont Trig Track you will find the Broadwalk Falls, small but worth a visit. 

Baked Beans Bend is a challenging and technical trail for mountain biking or walking with a great view at the top.

The Puke Ariki trail traverses the length of Belmont Regional Park. Be ready for a variety of track types and terrain!

The 1 hour Korokoro Dam loop will take you up to a beautiful man-made waterfall.

Getting to the park is easy, either by car or bus. Bus timetables are available from the Metlink website.
