Free walking trails Here!

Walking Trail Opening Hours:

The walking trails are open during Park opening times only. 

Please check the Park status before walking.

Did you know we have two FREE uphill walking trails?

The new walking trail is now open! Enjoy a 30-40 minute return walk through the trees and spot some NZ native birds as you go, as well as some hidden surprises along the way!

The start and end of the track can be found behind the Adventure Park Café, the perfect spot to enjoy a well-earned drink after your walk!


The uphill hiking trail can be accessed via the Village car park or drop into Guest Services for a map. This is an energetic walk up to the top of the hill, take in Christchurch's panoramic views from the Southern Alps across to the Pacific Ocean, while watching bikers and zipliners whiz past.

Once you make it to the top of the walking trail, enjoy a FREE CHAIRLIFT ride back down to the village.
