A man has died on a walking track on the Kapiti Coast, north of Wellington.

Emergency services were called to the Paekakariki Escarpment track at about 1.15pm on Monday, where a man in his early 60s had fallen and died, a police spokesman said.

His death was not suspicious and had been referred to the coroner.

The man died near the top of the track about five kilometres in, a witness says.
