An interesting Mt Wellington walk starting at the Springs, up the Ice House track (completely missing the ice houses), lunch just south of the summit and back down via Zigzag & Pinnacle tracks.

Mt Wellington Walk

15 February 2015
Mt Wellington Walk

Lenah Valley to Junction Cabin via North South and Lenah Valley tracks. An easy-ish walk but a decent workout for an old fart like me. The junction is a cool place to stop for lunch, and sometimes make a decision to take one of the other tracks when you are feeling energetic.

North South track is easier on the way up as it is a shared bike track, therefore less steep. You do need to keep your eyes open in order to hop out of the way when riders come along.
