Some tracks and reserves remain closed due to significant rockfall risk identified after the Canterbury earthquakes in 2011. Specialist contractors may be rolling and deconstructing rocks in these areas.
Obey any closure or warning signs.
Just as much care should be taken with open tracks as hazards are not always immediately obvious.
Hazard indicators include signs of rocks having moved, cracks and slumping of the ground or rock debris at the base of cliffs.
Walkers are advised to remain well clear of the tops and bottoms of coastal cliffs, bluffs and rocky outcrops.
