Hike up and over the Port Hills with amazing views of Lyttelton Harbour & Christchurch City. You can either start in Heathcote from the Christchurch Gondola carpark on Bridle Path Road or head through the tunnel and start from the Lyttelton side on Bridle Path (not "Road").

The bridle path trail is well groomed and plenty wide for multiple users at a time. At the top there are 360 views of Christchurch and Lyttelton. Pretty steep incline in a relatively short distance. Took us 25 min to reach the top and we were hoofing it!! Would do this trail again.
