I thought there might be enough snow on Mt Tennent for a snow shoe, so I planned to wander up the Mt Tennent Fire Trail from Apollo Rd. Perhaps I’d be a better meteorologist if I stuck my head out the door when I got up, instead of turning on the heater. Walked out the front door at 11am to a (relatively) balmy day and, driving over the saddle into Kambah, saw there was nothing on Mt Tennent. Anyway, I had a 3pm meeting at the Namadgi Visitors Centre, so I drove on to there to just walk up the AAWT, link track and Mt Tennent FT to the top.
A pleasant trip up, pausing at Cypress Pine Lookout to undress. 7km and 1hr 50mins up. No time for lunch, as it was 1.25pm.
7km and 1hr 30mins down.
1 walker – me.
