From the velodrome exit road, ascend a gravel path that passes directly over the Mount Victoria Tunnel (marked by the exhaust of a large ventilation shaft). Cross Alexandra Road to where this track intersects with Southern Mt Victoria track. Then drop down through the trees and head north.
About 0.6km from Alexandra Road you'll cross the Mt Vic Summit track coming up from Pirie Street. A further 0.2km along, just above Charles Plimmer Park, Lookout Walkway track heads up the hill to the right.
When the track opens out into Charles Plimmer Park, skirt around to the left, down a ramp to Lawson Place, and finally to the top of Majoribanks Street.

The start is near the northern end of the velodrome in Hataitai. An alternative entry is up a set of sealed footpath switchbacks and steps at the end of Hinau Street.
The track ends in the city, at the top of Majoribanks Street where a flight of steps ascends to Charles Plimmer Park. The steps also mark the southern end of Charles Plimmer track.
