Trail Description
About this trail
The seven kilometre Godley Head Track starts with a gnarly climb over rocks and old lava that will try to take out your chain wheel and bend your pedals. After that it flows nicely across open tussock country with glorious ocean views all the way to the Godley Head car park. From there it's a fast and flowing run back along the other side of Godley Head Road to Breezes Col. From the sign there you can take the curvy and exhilarating Anaconda track down to Taylors Mistake or head back to Evans Pass.

It's a great trail - one of the best on the Port Hills - you'll be smiling all the way after you've got past the initial climb. The start is just a few metres after the end of the Greenwood Park Track. The two make a fantastic combination.

Review: The Godley Head Track is one of the best on the Port Hills for skilled riders. There is heaps of variety in pace and technicality. It's up on wide open hills with stunning views - a long way from hell!
