Lamar Track

Lamar Track

The Lamar Track distracted us on our short drive from the Mt Vernon car park to Upoko-o-Kuri / Witch Hill. This short track is not on Topo Map NZ, but is well signposted on the road with a parking area directly north of the Mt Vernon peak.

It is short and easy and was specifically designed to provide easy access to visitors of all abilities, including wheelchair users. The path leads to a fabulous view overlooking the east side of Christchurch and the Estuary of the Heathcote and Avon Rivers / Ihutai.

It also links with the Farm Track, which is one of several shared walking and cycling tracks that connect the Port Hills / crater rim with Christchurch.
