Cable Bay Walkway
From Nelson head north on Highway 6 for about 15km then turn left on Cable Bay Road. Follow this for about 7km to the parking.
Follow the white posts up the grassy hill and then follow the track along the ridge. Fantastic views. You’ll then enter a native forest reserve with abundant bird life. After the forest you’ll pop out at the summit area (picnic table and toilet). From here we typically run down the farm road to the left (leaving any gates the way you found them) and then back up the steep climb up the front of the bluff. From the summit, return the way you came back to Cable Bay.
Note: closed from 1 July to 7 October 2014 due to lambing.
