Trip Report

I last did Mt Tennent on 31 Aug 22. A bit slower today.

Nice work at the Naas Rd crossing.

New Naas Rd crossing

And across the other side.

New track with steps just over Naas Rd

Uneventful climb to the scenic track junction. We turned south-ish and walked through the view slabs.

View from the first lookout slab

And the second.

The track circles around the Mt Tennent summit and comes in from the south. A brunch break. I never get sick of the view to the west.

We returned down the Mt Tennent Fire Trail to the link track area, then onto the T-intersections.

A careful descent.

Nice to do it after a while. Thanks for your company Wahyu.


2 walkers – Wahyu S, me.
