Nice easy walk up the 4wd track with great views

Steep single track start and opens up later. Climb steadily up to summit road. We then turned left along summit road and came back down along Rapaki trail. Look out for Roger's Trail on your left which takes you back down to the car park where you started (Mt Vernon Park)

Great 10k. Every now and then the track disappears but it’s not hard to find it again. Beautiful Forrest’s and easy enough walk.

Absolutely beautiful.

Great in the dry, a tendency to be slippery after rainfall in Forrest sections. Great fun.

Absolutely stunning views. Got a little lost on the summit due to the lack of signs.
