Description

This might look like a short loop but the trick here is that its a great loop, and you can make this as long or as short as you like by doing repeats. Just one loop will get you 3.9km, so we've recommended 3 loops for to get you to double figures for starters.

The trail is well marked and dives in and out of native bush and open grasslands/ tussock. The wetland is an ever changing bird laden gem and is always photogenic. And if you are lucky you might even see a rare native like a White Heron (kotuku) or something similar.

There's also some interesting history and interpretative stops to understand how Christchurch started out as a swamp, was drained, and now in areas like this is being allowed to breathe again. Nice clear country like air will help the trail runners breath as well on this easy cruisey hit out.

Have fun and comment on how many laps you did, who can do the most?!
