This guy was doing his best to get up the hills.

He had to stop  to catch his breath before paddling on.

This is at the turn off to the look out.

Entering the path way to the look out

Turning back to the parking area it looked like this.

Just before sunset.

As the road rises away from Upper Hutt on the Te Marua to Kaitoki stretch of State Highway Two, you’ll encounter a new section of road just completed in 2005. It’s a $14.2 million, 5.5 kilometre realignment of this important part of the main artery to the Wairarapa.

Half way up the initial incline you’ll encounter the Te Marua Lakes Lookout, so named because it provides a stop-off to view the spectacular scene of the Hutt River valley and the twin lakes, known as Stuart Macaskill Lakes, built to provide back-up water for the urban areas downstream.
