This booklet is a concise, up-to-date guide to the current walking tracks and mountain bike trails on the Port Hills, with descriptive text and detailed maps. The Port Hills straddle the space between Canterbury and Banks Peninsula, on one side Christhchurch (Otautahi) and on the other Lyttelton Harbour (Whakaraupo). There are unparalleled opportunities for walking and recreation on the Port Hills, with a complexity of tracks and bush resevres that would take many weekends to explore. There is scope for 1 hour walks, half day walks, full day walks, mountain biking, or just simply parking and admiring that prime Port Hills asset – tremendous views accross the plains, the coastline, and to the Southern Alps. For those people interested in further walking opportunities around Canterbury and Banks Peninsula, the same author has published WALK AWAY: a guide to walking places in Canterbury, and BANKS PENINSULA: a guide to the walks and beaches, both available from bookshops and information centres.
