Castle Hill Limestone Reserve

11

There are heaps of walks branching off from this alpine highway but the best one is the Castle Hill Limestone Reserve. It's 80 minutes' drive from Christchurch towards the West Coast and only a short walk which gets you up in amongst a really weird natural stone landscape. The limestone rocks are all different shapes and heights and are popular with climbers but the majority of people come here for photo opportunities and hiking around. It's a neat place for a sheltered picnic spot as the maze of rocks are surrounded by flat grassy sections. It is in the middle of nowhere with the only facility being toilets so come prepared if you think you might get hungry or thirsty.
