Bullen Range from Urambi Hills

Thursday 25 April 2024: Kambah 4 Hills – L/E. Wanna get your match fitness in for the Urban Worn Boot Bash or just keen to walk a few urban peaks in the Kambah area without having to walk 30kms?
How about a 20km walk visiting Mt Taylor, Mt Arawang, Mt McQuoids and Urambi Hill, 560 ascents. Like to think it will be completed in less than 6 hours.


From Garmin Connect (recorded on MAP66i) – Distance: 22.08km | Climb: 640vm | Time: 5:06 moving +1:02 of stops = 6:08 | Grading: L/E; M(11).
