Pukekohe Five Summits Trail

  • Grade : Easy
  • Total Length : 21km ( can be done in a loop or in part )
  • Time : 5- 6 hours
  • Highest Elevation : Pukekohe Hill  ( 222 m above sea level)

Meet at Glen Eden Post Shop 8.30; or 9.30 at Ernie’s Reserve, Reynolds Road, Pukekohe.

If going straight to Ernie’s please let the leader know.

The Pukekohe Five Summits Trail circumnavigates central Pukekohe ( 21km loop) . It includes the five local hills  – Pukekohe Hill, Belmont Rise, Cape Hill, The Rock and  Roosevelt Park.

The trail covers a plethora of landscapes with interesting geological features (volcanic tuffs, cones, craters), passing through innumerable parks and  reserves, new and old subdivisions, off  and on the road walking paths.

For this walk, I would like to start from Cape Hill as the first summit. Cape Hill offers a clear  view  of  other four summits so we can appreciate the  landscapes of  Pukekohe and for us to have an idea how far the walk is before we start.
