Description

Belmont Trig provides spectacular views over Belmont Regional Park and beyond, including the South Island on a good day. It is a steep climb which can be hard work, but the views are worthwhile. At 457 meters above sea-level, Belmont Trig is the highest point in the centre of the Wellington Region.

The track is a steep gravel road which forms part of a loop that includes Dress Circle Tramping Track, Round Knob, and Old Coach Road Belmont.
