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 park is open daily from 8am. Much of the park is closed from August to October for lambing, although some key tracks remain open. Contact the park ranger for more information.

Dogs are not permitted in the park, including those left in vehicles.

Staying safe

  • There is no cellphone coverage in the park.
  • If you are doing the Puketiro Loop, please travel in a clockwise direction (follow the signs)
