I really enjoyed this track. It was easy going and we'll maintained. It was about 2.5 hours total. Lots of sheep and beautiful scenery. A nice change for me from the beaches and forest. And truly a gorgeous spot at sunrise! My pup also gives five stars!

Did the track as a group of 7 yesterday and was phenomenal. A bit windy as it was overcast all day but it was great. The track is quite slick and muddy in some spots due to the rain we've been having but still very well worth it. The views alone are gorgeous!

Paths starts from the beach, views are fab from the kick off. Lovely coastal walk. Some ups and downs but fairly easy. Seeing the WW2 structures was an added bonus. Gorgeous views. Lots of sheep around. When you reach the ‘peak’ it’s not clear where the path continues. We ended up taking the mountain bike path back, which was actually super quick on foot haha. As usual NZ weather, sun, winds and rain during this 3 hour total trail (2hrs there, 1 back).

We had only been as far as Boulder Bay before but last weekend we did the Godley Head Loop walk. Got up early and started walking at 6:50am. What a stunning walk! So looking forward to doing it again. A little more signage at the gun emplacements and at the GH car park on directions would be helpful but people out and about helped show us the way.

Excellent walk. We walked from Taylor’s Mistake to avoid the uphill climb at the end. More sheltered from the easterly wind than I had expected.

Godley Head offers spectacular views over the ocean. The part that goes from Taylor's Mistake to Godley Head is the most beautiful part. It can be made a loop track by following the path at Godley Head towards Lyttleton. At the first car park climb the hill on your left and follow the track towards the summit road and the crater rim walk. Cross the summit road and you can walk down to Taylor's Mistake. I love this track as it is good for running too. The first part of the walk was a couple of weeks ago overgrown, but that's all fixed now.

Busy Godley head walkway and overgrown route towards Tunnel route. This route was also not well kept.

Worth the effort, really easy walk with a bit of up and downs in the start and finish but the views bows your mind if its a sunny day.

Best walk in Christchurch by far. Great views of the water, cliffs, and waterfalls. Tons of birds to see as well.
