|Dry Ridge Track, Mount Vernon Park
Altitude change 77m
This walk is an alternative to the Mount Vernon Valley Track, and forms a nice circuit.
From the car park, take the Dry Ridge Track up onto the hillside and look for the marked turn off.
The Marette Taylor Track sidles up the valley as a narrow foot track, gaining height gradually. It crosses grassland with the odd kōwhai or muehlenbeckia, passing fenced and revegetated areas. Beyond the view down to the picnic shelter, the track drops down a little gully and reconnects with the Valley Track.
Circuit walking time is about 45 minutes.
