Guide: Gina Waibl

Get really off the beaten track and enjoy stunning views of Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere and Lyttelton Harbour/Whakaraupō on this special walk across private farmland near Gebbies Pass. This is an easy walk suitable for a range of ages and fitness, but the track is rough and only partly formed for much of the way. Climb over Coopers Knob and continue up above Ahuriri Reserve, before returning through regenerating scrub and along the spectacular ridgeline. Carpooling at the start removes the sting from the climb.

Duration: 2-3 hours

Walk Length: 4kms. Walk climbs about 200m

Walk Difficulty: WALK - Partly formed track, some up and down

Wear tramping boots or sturdy walking shoes. Bring lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen and weatherproof gear.
