Don't attempt this walk if your not physically healthy! We started near the Gondola car park. The walk is steep up to the summit car park and if you continue to Lyttleton the walk back from there is quite steep as well. The views just...More
This walk is not to be taken lightly.. even with my walking aids it is basically up a steep hill that the pilgrims used ..
Being winter I had thermal bottoms and top on.. this was too hot and I had to strip off along...More
Wow. Extremely hard walk - basically straight up a steep hill.. water bottle is needed and stops along the way if your not very fit like myself! The view from the top is well worth the walk!!! Around 1 hour to the top!
Did the entire bridle path from Lyttelton to the gondola carpark and it was a stunning walk. It was freezing in lyttelton and visibility was initially very poor due to low lying fog and cloud, but the initial part of the walk is very steep...More

We had a great time on this walk. We are in decent shape but the climb was very steep. We were for sure out of breath as we hiked up the incline. It was a cool day and pretty cloudy but the view was still...More
This is a regular walk for us - on our own or with visitors. We normally walk over from the Christchurch side to Lyttelton for lunch, then back again. There are lots more walkers who walk from the Christchurch side to the top and back...More
