Named after a tree felled in the 1950's that resembled a cannon when viewed from the valley, the moderately demanding Cannon Point Walkway takes you through native bush past the Birchville reservoir to Cannon Point where your efforts are rewarded with spectacular views of the Hutt Valley. Choose from one of two routes down. The shorter and more direct route zig-zags down the face of the hill and the longer descent follows the western ridge. Finish the walk at the car park with a stroll along the banks of the Hutt River.
