    This track is in pretty good condition. It is wide which is good as it is shared with both walkers and those on mountain bikes. The track is a good gradient for first part and then it flatens out before the last climb to the top. Great views from the top. There were school children on the track the day I did it so ok for most fitness level's.

    We cycled as a group of 5 from Prebbleton. It was pretty well signposted although a couple of times I could have missed the turn off in Lincoln. We really liked the way it followed a river to the lakes. We saw heaps of birds. Some areas of track need to be cleared of weeds and low hanging trees. It was a hot day and we ran short of water. I was really surprised there wasn't a tap at Motukarara. It took us longer than anticipated due to heat and uncomfy bike seats. We carried a lot of gear as we stayed the night at the Little River Camp Ground in a cabin. Allow another 20 mins to cycle there and some of it is uphill. Lovely rustic eco campground. We cycled down to have dinner at the Little River Hotel. Very average meal but we were hungry so it was fine. Ate lunch at the LR cafe and gallery the next day - awesome. All in all we loved the adventure.

    This is a wonderful MTB park close to Christchurch. The trails are very well-maintained, easy to follow and although the park is popular with the residents of Christchurch, the users are polite and courteous. Judging by the number of children biking the trails, it is a park that is suitable for all ages. Walkers are encouraged too. Added to this, there is a kiosk selling drinks, bikes for hire and clean toilets available.

    This was our favorite part of our Christchurch visit. We took the city bus to the car park beside the gondola where the hike starts. It's a short steep climb up the summit where you'll be rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of Lyttelton town + Harbour and all the surrounding mountains. It took us about 2 hour to get to the observation area. There are various other paths to explore, we opted for the Tors Trail (453 m). We liked the fact we could take a different path down. Ended up in the town of Lyttelton where you will find a super seafood restaurant beside the bus stop.
