Find your Wild and enjoy Wellington’s regional trails your way.
The Wellington Regional Trails project is a collaboration between the region’s district and city councils, the Greater Wellington Regional Council, Department of Conservation and the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency.
The Wellington region is becoming wildly famous for its spectacular recreational trails. We want to make sure everyone knows about these unique experiences and that our residents in the Greater Wellington region get to enjoy them every day.
The individual regional landowners listed below have handpicked and approved 200 of our regions’ best trail experiences to showcase to our residents and the world. That’s close to 300 km of spectacular mountain biking, walking and horse riding tracks that weaves through some of Wellington’s 40,000 hectares of publicly owned land. These awesome trails stretch from Wellington CBD all the way to the northern Wairarapa and Kāpiti Coast.
From scenic coastal walks with panoramic views, to rugged hilltop biking trails, leisurely rambles through native forests, and bumpy riverbank tracks, there’s a tranquil, hair-raising (if that’s what you’re after), or picturesque pathway to suit everyone’s next adventure.
So, put on your shoes, saddle up your horse, and get your mountain bike at the ready because there’s a giant playground right here in Wellington’s back yard waiting to be explored.
