It's definitely nice to have an off leash forest walk so close to Christchurch. It is definitely a bit underwhelming and can be busy at times. But nonetheless, a great convenient short hike that is truly pup friendly (which is really lacking in this country!)

Awesome little walk, close to town but feels like out back. Trail was kept well. Tough for kids under 6 and prams. Stabilized Full HD video available on YouTube. Search 'Walk with Me'

We only did a short loop as recording shows. the track was well maintained and very easy going. We will be bringing our dog next time. We had a 18 month old in a pram and was easy pushing for the most part. Full HD, stabilized video of our walk available. Search: 'Walk with Me' on YouTube.

Reasonably level track, but some routes are poorly marked. If you are only getting a walking symbol every half km then you arent on the main route! Not much variety in the vegetation.

Great 10k. Every now and then the track disappears but it’s not hard to find it again. Beautiful Forrest’s and easy enough walk. Love McLeans
