Little River Rail Trail


The Christchurch to Little River Rail Trail is a cycleway and walkway between Christchurch and Little River.




Maintenance and repairs of the Graylees Bridge is scheduled to be undertaken during the week of 10th October 2022, however, the date may change due to weather. This work will require the closure of the trail between Seabridge Road and Kaituna for approximately 3 days while this work is completed. During this time, warnings and diversions will be in place to divert cyclists onto the road. We recommend seeking further updates which will be posted on the Department of Conservation website. We apologise for any inconvenience while this work is undertaken.



Had a great time - Thanks for the lovely trail. Just right as a starter for me and a couple of teens as we plan our first multi day trail for school holidays. 


We had a great time on the Little River Rail Trail. We cycled from Rolleston to Little River, stayed overnight at SiloStay, then cycled back to Rolleston the following day.

The scenery on the trail is beautiful, particularly cycling alongside Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere. It’s definitely something we plan to do again. 




As the golden rays bounce off the water, the sun sets behind snow capped mountains. This amazing spot is ten minutes drive from us.
