My favourite run in Upper Hutt has to be the "Karapoti-Cannon Point" run. You can run it in either direction (I usually get someone to drop me off at the Karapoti Walkbridge), then proceed to run up the road until I get to a Forestry bridge, where I then take a left, and continue uphill, finally arriving at the top of Cannon Point. From here, there are many options in order to descend to Totara Park. I usually take the road, as it is the least steepest. This run usually takes me around 100-110 minutes at a leisurely pace. The views are panoramic, and Wellington harbour (30 km away), can be seen on a good day.
