Tunnel Gully Recreation Area nestles at the foot of Mount Climie (860m) in
the Pakuratahi Forest north of Upper Hutt.

The Mount Climie track gives you the opportunity to see the changes in
vegetation in the northern Rimutaka Range with increase in altitude and
exposure to wind.

The Mt Climie ridge provides the southern and eastern backdrop (and
windbreak) to Upper Hutt. It is also part of the long northern skyline of the
Rimutaka Range seen across the harbour from Wellington City.

The track to Mt Climie starts from the upper picnic area. Look out for
service vehicles at all times. Along the summit ridge the vegetation opens
out to give magnificent views of the Hutt Valley. Allow 3-4 hours return.
