Woden from Mt Taylor

Monday evening 21 December: Mount Taylor Triple – M/E. The plan for this walk is to go to the summit of Mount Taylor three times via three different routes, taking in the fabulous views of Canberra, Tuggeranong, and the Brindabellas. The descents will be via another three routes. Meeting time is 6:00pm at Sulwood Drive, opposite Mannheim Street, Kambah. All up, the walk’s about 8km with around 500 metres of climbing. Should finish by civilian twilight at 8:47 (sunset is at 8:17) but please bring a torch.

Track Notes

After a hot week, a perfect cool evening to pop up and down and up and down and up and down Mt Taylor (if you don’t get the drift, have a look at the track profile). Great evening exercise in good company.

Thanks Nathan and all.
