The Trig Track exits onto Tuteremoana, the peak of Kāpiti Island, at 521 metres high. It is a moderately sized flat area, well sheltered by high native bushes on the east side and chest-high shrubs on the west side. Several of the shrubs had tiny subtle flowers, typical of many native plants. There are also picnic tables and a viewing platform to climb.

It is a near-vertical drop on the west side of the peak, but the shrubs protect the edge. In any event, the views to the north and west are spectacular. For an all-around view back to the Kāpiti Coast, walk up the viewing tower.
