The parts still closed due to earthquake are even better due to there being no traffic, this is an great outdoor location, walk/run/bike on or off road/picnic or just enjoy the scenery

The drive up the hills is amazing, windy road and awesome views. Once you get up to the hills, there's spots to stop at and walk over to look at the panoramic view of the town. Great spot for sunsets!

Several varied and well posted walking and cycling tracks. Gondola restaurant an added bonus. Road to various vantage points is good, one section closed following earthquake damage in 2011, but most is accessible by car.

Saw tracks for mountain bikers, walkers and runners. A heaven for those who love trails. The hills are lush and green in Autumn...whatever the season it's a stunning place to be in. Don't forget to drive down Summit road that leads to Sumner.

Awesome for motorbiking, driving, push biking up, or just going up and walking around. Leads to Lyttelton and surrounding bays, so well worth the extra 8kms compared to going via the tunnel.
