Battle Hill Farm Forest Park
With its farm setting, native bush reserve and panoramic views Battle Hill provides a great opportunity to enjoy the open spaces of rural Wellington. The 500 hectares of Battle Hill are a mix of flat, rolling and steeper hill country, making it a haven for walking, horse riding, mountain biking, camping and picnicking.

How to get there
Turn off SH 58 at Pauatahanui onto the Paekakariki Hill Road and drive 6km to Battle Hill Farm Forest Park.
Alternatively, turn off SH1 at Plimmerton onto Grays Rd, then turn left at the end onto Paekakariki Hill Rd.
The Kapiti end of Paekakariki Hill Road beyond Battle Hill is not suitable for heavy vehicles.
This is a working farm so dogs are not permitted in the park, even if they are left in vehicles. So please leave Rover at home otherwise the Ranger gets very annoyed.
