Walking track map

This map is not extensive and we are working to extend the map to cover other great places to walk around Christchurch over time. If you have any feedback email us at parksinfo@ccc.govt.nz.

Pick up the Port Hills Walks brochure from your nearest service centre or the iSite located in the Arts Centre, or download a copy [PDF, 6.1 MB].

Purple tracks are designated for pedestrians only. Orange tracks are shared between walkers and cyclists. Cyclists please exercise caution on shared tracks and give way to walkers.

Map Listing


While we do our best to ensure information is correct and regularly updated, errors in the data and its completeness may occur. The walks that we are promoting are represented by interactive, clickable lines - we cannot verify the accuracy of any tracks displayed on the underlying base map.

All users should be aware that changes in the environment can happen quickly such as slips, rockfalls, or access across private land and may not be represented immediately on the mapping provided. Take note of signs on the ground. Be aware of safety in the outdoors and be suitably prepared for your walk.

Please note that the following tracks on the Port Hills remain closed since the Canterbury earthquakes in 2011 – Heathcote Quarry Track and Whitewash Head Track. 

Also note that with completion of the new Western Bypass, the map of the Groynes is outdated and still shows the road being constructed. This may result in some slight changes in the walking tracks.
