Running alongside the Hutt River from Hikoikoi Reserve, Petone to Birchville, Upper Hutt, the 29km Hutt River Trail is an easy scenic walk and cycle path. It also allows access to the river for swimming, fishing and kayaking. Predominantly flat, the Hutt River Trail offers very easy tracks and pathways suitable for biking, walking, and pushchairs.

The Trail runs the entire length of the eastern riverbank. There are trails on all but three sections of the western side to provide shorter loops between bridges.

Along the way you will find four golf courses, swimming holes, trout fishing spots, play grounds, shopping, a campground at either end, and various parks and reserves on the banks of the river. 


Bike The Trail
Follow the flow of the river on this annual 25km or 12km family bike event along the Hutt River Trail, with a free shuttle taking you back to your car afterwards.
