The Christchurch 360 trail creates an almost complete circle around the city, linking existing walking trails in parks with well-chosen cityscapes.

Christchurch 360 Trail logo

The Christchurch 360 Trail is divided into eight legs, each averaging about 17 kilometres long.  A map board is at the start and finish of each leg. 

The trail's logo and arrows are the route markers both in parks and on city streets.

One section of the trail, from McLeans Forest to Avonhead Park,  is not yet open as there is no walking infrastructure at present.

The trail highlights many of the city's natural features from the beach, estuary, Port Hills, waterways and tree-lined streets. 

Detailed descriptions of the route and its features can be found on the Christchurch 360 trail website(external link) along with downloadable maps of each leg.
