Thank you for your enquiry.

Yes, there are walking tracks near our top station. There is a map at the bottom level of the top station illustrating the tracks, and you are also welcome to ask our staff who will be able to point these out to you.

Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,

Emma

The area has many walking tracks and you will get some magnificent views out across Lyttelton Harbour and Banks Peninsula. In the other direction you'll see the Southern Alps ( on a clear day) across the Canterbury Plains.

Yes there appears to be plenty of walking areas around the mountain. We even saw a car up there outside the summit building, I have no idea how it got there.

Yes there are numerous walking trails including the option of walking up from the base of the gondola to the summit (which is known as the "bridal path"). Once at the summit you can traverse along the ridge to any number of lookout points (either via the road or on the walking tracks) or you can descend down into Lyttleton. Once at Lyttleton you can catch a bus back to the base of the gondola via the tunnel (to save you walking back up again) or even go onto Christchurch.

Once on the ridge there is little change of getting lost as the gondola is always in view and the terrain is fairly easy walking.

Hi, yes there are walking trails, we even saw some cyclists up there on the old road. Some trails are accessible from down below at the Gondola entry point, others start from the top. One even looks like you could walk down into Lyttleton Harbour. Not sure if you actually can but it looked that way. Good walking shoes or boots would perhaps be needed.

Yes. There are. I believe the gondola station has a series of maps illustrating walks at the top of the mountain (you might be able to get these on-line?). I also understand if you are fit you can walk up/down the mountain instead of taking the gondola. Make sure you allow plenty of time and you have checked the weather forecast.

No. There is a ride on the floor below the viewing deck that describes the history of the area. There are not trails there that I was aware of.
