About the trail

As the name suggests, 4 Degrees is a leisurely climb up to Old Coach Road, the first road ever built between Lower Hutt and Porirua.

4 Degrees is mostly used by uphill bikers and walkers travelling in both directions. It offers an easier ride than the alternative route along Slogger Logger (a 4WD track).

  • You can start the trail at the Stratton Street entrance to Belmont Regional Park which climbs up to Old Coach Road, or from the Normandale Road entrance
  • There are regular bus and train services to Lower Hutt and the surrounding area. Timetables are available from the Metlink website.
