The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.
Parks and cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only, and where possible we have closed off park car parks. Please do not use any play equipment or exercise equipment.
The following are closed:
Start: Cavendish Saddle, Summit Road, Port Hills.
Finish: Ross Terrace, Lyttelton.
Time: 30 minutes one way.
Dogs: Must be kept on a leash.
In the 1850s, publican and run holder Major Alfred Hornbrook, formed much of this track to access Lyttelton from his home in Mt Pleasant.
From the layby at Cavendish Saddle, cross the cattle grid and pick up Major Hornbrook Track heading downhill towards Lyttelton. The track leads you under rocky bluffs before descending through a field of boulders and regenerating bush in Major Hornbrook Reserve. Continue on until the track joins Ross Terrace.
Turn left onto Ross Terrace and continue across Cornwall Road. Turn right at Canterbury Road which will take you straight down to London Street and the heart of the town.
