View of Lyttelton from the top of the Bridle Path

I walked up the Bridle Path track today for a bit of strenuous exercise (it’s rather steep). The reward is always the view of Lyttelton and the harbour.

    • According to Wikipedia “A bridle path, also bridleway, equestrian trail, horse riding path, bridle road, or horse trail, is a path, trail or a thoroughfare that is used by people riding on horses.” This specific track was how the early settlers brought all of their belongings into Christchurch – they walked everything over with horses. Quite a feat in Victorian clothing after six months in a boat!

  1. Beautiful view of Lyttelton from the top of Bridle Path!

    Just curious if you saw any extremely fit and energetic souls taking their mountain bikes up this track?
