A 2km walk, taking about 1½ hours.

This loop walk has a common entry and exit point and is suitable for those with average fitness.

Follow the Southern Walkway from Melrose Park along the ridge toward the summit. At the water reservoir a four-wheel drive track leads to the hockey stadium. A side track off this leads back to Melrose Park.

The walk goes behind Wellington Zoo, giving views of Cook Strait. It also includes Four Cross Track - a specialised mountain bike downhill race track, suitable for those at an intermediate level.
