Caught a bus to Fern Tree, this hike is a another great challenge. Steep and muddy in sections with exposed areas. Awesome scenery and views of the city.

A nice half day walk close to Hobart - starts with a steep climb before reaching some spectacular boulder fields toward the summit of kunanyi/Mount Wellington. Offers great views over the entire south east of Tasmania but is very exposed to the weather, so come prepared.

Quite a decent hike. Followed the path until that last section (Middle Track was closed for maintenance) so we just went the way we came in. The South Wellington track across the top had some larger rocks on the way down and required a bit of navigating. Amazing views from the top of Mt Wellington. Would be challenging after rain and hiking boots were absolutely required. Took us about 5-5:30hrs to complete

Did a half round: took the bus from hobart city, startet at Fern Tree, with blade Track to Springs carpark. From there it was the pinnacle way and Zig-Zag way to the summit. It took approx. 2hrs. For way down we continued the pinnacle road for a bit, took the panorama track down, it joins the organ pipe track, again further down on pinnacle road. Later we took the swanmill track (higher and lower part), passed the Sphinx lookout (very nice views and maybe you can see rock climbers here. At the end of lower swanmill track (be aware of a lot downhill walking

A good solid walk. My Master 8 manages fine. But wear proper boots on the Zig-Zag track and be prepared for steep inclines which are slippy when wet.

Excellent hike with a variety of terrains. Beautiful views of Hobart and the bays along the way. Fantastic views at the summit. Quite busy on the way up but much quieter on the way down.

Great walk. Fern and Spring provide an amazing lookout and newly resurfaced track. Highly recommended!! Consider not taking the South Wellington/Ice House Track, beautiful in itself, possibly not with low viz and inappropriate footwear.

This was a wonderful hike (didn't know of the loop so did it as a out and back) and I have to say, Hobart in general is a great escape after being in a city like Melbourne or Sydney for a while. Hiked with a big group of people most who doesn't typically hike at all. Everyone enjoyed the hike and loved the view. It is definitely cold up there so bring a spare jacket. There is a enclosed viewing area if you get too cold but don't want to head back down yet though :)

Gorgeous Hike, and outstanding view but I think it should be consider Hard level because the weather can be very rough and the path is uneven at some part. Get a good pair of shoes and get some extra layers because its very windy on top! But it worth it!!!

A very interesting walk. Lots of different landscapes. Sadly one part was closed for maintenance. But there was a lovely alternative. I really enjoyed it on a sunny Saturday at Easter
