Peak Hill route
3 hr return
From Algidus Road there is a sign and a marked easement over private land, which will take you to the summit along an unformed route. The walk should take about three hours return, and is suitable for family groups.
From Christchurch, head towards Darfield or Hororata until you meet up with Coleridge Road. Go through Lake Coleridge Village then turn west onto Algidus Road. The signed entrance to Peak Hill is nine km up Algidus Road.
Plan and prepare
The walk to Peak Hill is extremely exposed to the weather and walkers should be well equipped.
