Getting There

This walk was organised and led by me as a combined CBC/Parkway short ramble:

A gentle ramble, with plenty of conversation, E along the side of Sulwood Rd to gain the Mt Taylor Nature Reserve, NE along the powerline trail and SE up to the Mt Taylor trig. Here we enjoyed the views all round, the new signage and Tim Tams, chocolate freckles, mini muffins, pretzels, chocolate bars and almond fingers! Lots of other folk enjoying the hill, walking running, with dogs and kids. No snow left on Mt Gingera for next Tuesday (although there might be some on its W flanks on Brumbys Flats).

Home via the grand concrete descent and NW back above Sulwood Drive.

Thanks to Bernie C, Chris F, Deirdre K, Edwina Y, Jonathan M, Lisa and Stephen M, Nathan H, Neralie L, Richard and Nicole C, Ruth C, Shawn F and Stan and Isobel L. Hope you enjoyed it.
