Fun walk with a meetup group. Nice to approach a different way.

Always a favourite great to walk it with a group make sure you have plenty of water as there is no where to refill. The rock scramble provides plenty of great views but you may need to channel a bit of a mountain goat as you scramble across!

Always a great mountain to climb and the view each time gets better and better. Not for the faint hearted as the rock scramble across the top is one to be careful of. Make sure you have plenty of water and sunscreen!

Training for Kokoda in September this is one of the best trails for preparation!

Always a good hike and one that tests your stamina and endurance at times.
