If you're keen to sight-see and work up a sweat, but don't want to break your back doing so, give the Turitea and Adderstone Walkway a go.
Leave the Old West Road carpark behind as you climb to Turitea Road and further on to Pacific Drive where you will be rewarded with amazing views over the Manawatū countryside.
Cross Pacific Drive to continue along the Adderstone Walkway to Aokautere Drive. Work up an appetite and after exiting the walkway, you will arrive near the Summerhill Shopping Centre for refreshments and toilets.
