A short walk in Kaitoke Regional Park

During the Wellington movies tour a few months ago we had a longish stop in the Kaitoke Regional Park. After lunch and a visit to Rivendell our guide encouraged us to take the long way back to the carpark.

I think this was so that he could have a sleep in the van. Luckily for him we all thought it was a good idea and off we went.

About 40ish or so minutes long, we followed a loop route along some paved paths and some soft tracks through beautiful native bush. It was a really enjoyable serene experience and now that I know it’s there, I doubt it will be the last time I visit.

I finished the walk with one lingering question: why must there always be someone who bounces the swing bridge?

    • That was probably my main takeaway from the day truth be told. Will try and get back there soon – also want to do the Rimutaka trig walk which is in the neighbourhood.

  4. okay so here is where I ‘fess up – I bounce on the swing bridge. I don’t know why, it must just be some innate annoying part of me that must be a pest….
